Hoeven, Rove all talk; Dakota Boys all action

Conrad, Dorgan, Pomeroy - our Dakota Boys were hard at work in DC again as they fought a two year battle with the White House to secure over $1 billion in transportation funding for our state. $70 million of that will go to the Devils Lake area for road reconstruction. So while Hoeven met with Rove last month to discuss “official business” (remember Devils Lake was the cover story for that visit), our Dakota Boys were actually working to get the funding for our state.
Don't forget, Karl Rove doesn't do Devils Lake. Karl Rove does politics. And dirty politics at that.
