Conrad works hard for ND, Hoeven works hard for political ambitions

The Bismarck Tribune reported that Bismarck-Mandan is getting an economic development boost (http://www.bismarcktribune.com/articles/2005/08/12/news/local/100537.txt).
Ground broke at the airport for the Northern Plains Commerce Centre, which will bring more jobs into the area. Senator Conrad worked hard to ensure that $2 million was included in the federal highway bill for this project.

While Conrad worked hard at the federal level to get funding for the state, Hoeven worked hard at the Bismarck Airport to get his picture taken and his name in the paper. Perhaps, he wants to use the photo for a campaign brochure?
