HHnSources confirm North Dakota Congressman Rick Berg will be appearing before the Fargo Cass Republicans at 12:45 pm today to announce he is conceding the race for the United States Senate to former Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp.  Heitkamp's campaign, which fivethirtyeight blogger Nate Silver characterized as a sure thing for Berg (see his math, below), was a perfectly executed masterpiece, run by first rate professionals.  I know because I consider many of them to be friends.

You read it here first.


"Safe Republican," right Nate?  (Click here for FiveThirtyEight blog.)

Hey, don't blame Nate. All he can do is work with the polling data that is available. All he had was a bunch of right-wing pollsters doing polling. When that's all you have, there is no way to figure out the extent of their rightward lean without having some high-quality non-partisan polling to provide you with a base.

The big question...
Will the editor of the Fargo Forum apologize for his indignation at the fact that people thought(correctly!) that his polls sucked?
