TODAY'S THOUGHT

The challenge for believers is to understand when our technology habits are leading us into greater anxiety, fear, anger, and pride and be willing to course correct as necessary....to harness these tools rather than allow them to master us.

North Dakota Republicans started election night with Kevin Cramer's U.S. Senate win over Heidi Heitkamp and Kelly Armstrong's U.S. House victory over Mac Schneider, and they kept rolling.....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Republicans started election night with Kevin Cramer's U.S. Senate win over Heidi Heitkamp and Kelly Armstrong's U.S. House victory over Mac Schneider, and they kept rolling.

    The GOP once again swept all the state offices, including a narrow triumph by longtime Secretary of State Al Jaeger, who ran as an independent because he wasn't endorsed by the party.

    Republicans also saw approval for a ban on noncitizen voting after it was put on the ballot in part to counter turnout for an initiative to legalize marijuana.

    Democrats held out hope for a moral victory with a government ethics measure that was leading as the final votes were tallied. The measure is sponsored by a bipartisan group but Democrats have tried unsuccessfully for years to pass something similar in the Legislature.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Republican Kevin Cramer was happy to keep his U.S. House seat until President Donald Trump pleaded with him to run for Senate. Cramer defeated Democratic U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp on Tuesday after a long and contentious campaign in the conservative state. Cramer played up his support of most of Trump's policies and withstood Heitkamp's big money advantage.

    The 57-year-old Cramer has spent most of his life in public service. He began his career as director and chairman of the state Republican Party. He has served as state tourism director, state economic development director, and as a member of the state Public Service Commission. He ran unsuccessfully for the House three times before breaking through in 2012.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Democrat Heidi Heitkamp says serving in the U.S. Senate was the "highest honor" of her life. Heitkamp issued a statement Tuesday after losing her seat to three-term U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer. Heitkamp, who served just one term, says she brought common sense to the Senate and thought every day how she could "fight for rural America."
 
     Heitkamp narrowly won her first term in the sharply conservative state. She sought a second term by portraying herself as a maverick who wasn't afraid to buck her own party - or President Donald Trump. Heitkamp raised more than $27 million for her re-election campaign. That was almost five times as much as Cramer.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Newly re-elected Secretary of State Al Jaeger says his eighth term will be his last. Jaeger, a Republican, beat Josh Boschee, a Democratic state representative from Fargo, on Tuesday. Jaeger's victory came despite being snubbed by his own party and attacked by opponents as behind the times. Jaeger says those attacks were unfair.

    The 74-year-old Jaeger was first elected in 1992. He had to gather signatures to run as an independent after the GOP rejected him at its state convention in favor of Mandan businessman Will Gardner.

    Both Gardner and Boschee portrayed Jaeger as behind the times in running the office charged with overseeing elections. Gardner quit the race after an older disorderly conduct conviction came to light.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Republican Wayne Stenehjem has won his sixth term as attorney general. The former private attorney and state legislator defeated Grand Forks trial lawyer and Democrat David Thompson. Stenehjem was first elected attorney general in 2000 and has been re-elected easily since.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Supreme Court Justice Lisa Fair McEvers has won re-election. McEvers won the 10-year term over longtime Bismarck trial lawyer Bob Bolinske Sr. Bolinske also ran unsuccessfully in 2016. McEvers was appointed in 2014 by then-Gov. Jack Dalrymple to fill two of the four remaining years of retiring Justice Mary Maring's unexpired term. She won election in 2016 to fill out the final two years of Maring's term.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota residents have voted to explicitly bar non-U.S. citizens from voting in federal, state and local elections. The outcome in Tuesday's election changes the North Dakota Constitution. Supporters said they believed it was necessary to clarify ambiguous wording, even though it's already illegal for noncitizens to vote in the state. Opponents called the measure pointless and said it played politics with the constitution.
 
     Conservatives heavily promoted it, with a key supporter saying he hoped it could help the GOP in the state's close Senate race. Secretary of State Al Jaeger has said there have been some reports of non-U.S. citizens voting in North Dakota but nothing was ever proven.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota voters have rejected a ballot measure that would have legalized recreational marijuana. The measure defeated Tuesday would have made it legal for people 21 and older to grow, possess and distribute marijuana.
 
     It also would have wiped away the records of anyone convicted of a marijuana-related crime that would have been legal under the new measure. That would have included tens of thousands of criminal records, and the attorney general's office says it would have been expensive.
 
     Opponents argued that legalizing marijuana would lead to a rise in violent crimes, impaired-driving fatalities and workplace problems. Supporters argued that legalizing pot would free up law enforcement to tackle more serious crimes.
 
     Nine states and Washington, D.C., have legalized recreational marijuana. North Dakota voters in 2016 legalized medical marijuana.
