his celebrity guests on The Tonight Show and his hugely popular lip-sync battles have always been a crowd favorite When pop princess Ariana Grande visited Monday night however the late-night host took a different but just as entertaining approach The duo shot a skit featuring Grande in her dressing room with Fallon entering and announcing himself as “Me Myself & I” They then proceeded to discuss everything from their #ThrowbackThursday Instagram posts (Grande’s from when she was “7 years” old and Fallon’s from when he was “Seventeen”) to their weekend plans (Jimmy wants to go to Home Depot and swing from a “Chandelier”) He also managed to slip in a mention of Grande’s new single “Dangerous Woman” which she performed at the end of the show The real star of the night however was Grande’s grandmother or nonna as she calls her who was in the audience and apparently has quite a soft spot for Fallon @ArianaGrande’s grandmother is a big fan of Jimmy #FallonTonight pictwittercom/El5kIRvppJ

historical oil boomHave a story idea Contact Baumgarten at 701-780-1248The circus will be going on next door to the Democratic convention inside the Bismarck Event Center But the real main attraction will be 200 miles away in FargoRepublicans expect a rollicking three-day state convention at Scheels Arena with two high-profile national keynote speakers and more than 1800 delegates voting to endorse a full slate of statewide candidates headlined by a three-way contest for the first open governor’s seat since 2000The Democratic-NPL Party meanwhile is hoping for 500 to 550 delegates and as of Friday had just two announced candidates for eight endorsed statewide offices: gubernatorial candidate Marvin Nelson a state representative from Rolla and running mate Joan Heckaman a state senator from New RockfordThe contrast between the overlapping conventions underscores the gap between the robust GOP which holds supermajorities in both chambers of the Legislature and controls all but one statewide office and Democrats struggling to stay relevant and rebalance the power in solidly red-state North DakotaFor Republicans the biggest worry may be that former presidential hopeful Ben Carson’s address about 10:10 am Sunday April 3 and another high-profile keynote speaker being announced this week could overshadow the key governor’s race"We’re thrilled that North Dakota is garnering some national attention but at the end of the day we want to make sure that this is about our candidates and our state" GOP Executive Director Roz Leighton saidFormer state GOP chairman Robert Harms an attorney and lobbyist advising Fargo businessman Doug Burgum’s campaign said he has attended every state convention since 1988 "and I think this will be one of the most exciting""I think there’ll be some surprises" he saidGOP conventionNo offense to the undercards but state GOP chairman Kelly Armstrong said the main event is clearly the contest between Burgum Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem and state Rep Rick Becker of Bismarck"I don’t think it’s unfair to say that the vast majority of the buzz around this election cycle in North Dakota has been around our three candidates for governor" he saidAnd for good reason: It’s the first three-way GOP endorsement race since 1992 when eventual Gov Ed Schafer bested state Sen Gary Nelson and Rep Gary Porter Republicans haven’t lost a governor’s race since then Heightening the interest is the fact that Burgum who led Great Plains Software through its $11 billion sale to Microsoft in 2001 and now works in real estate development and venture capital plans to run in the June 14 primary regardless of the convention’s outcome He has said he believes whoever wins the primary will be the state’s next governorBurgum will share his vision with delegates at the convention but "the key focus for Doug is June 14" communications manager Kate Mund saidIn a rare pre-convention move Burgum has spent nearly $500000 on a TV ad campaign to spread his message and try to overcome the strong name recognition enjoyed by Stenehjem who is the state’s longest-serving attorney general having been elected in 2000 after 24 years as a state lawmakerStenehjem widely considered the favorite for the GOP nod plans to start rolling out his own TV ads after the convention In the meantime he’s made nearly 1000 calls to delegates campaign manager Nate Martindale said"We’ve been getting very positive feedback" he said "Every day that passes we get more confident"Becker predicted a "very strong chance" the race will go to two ballots and said he’s more likely to pick up Burgum’s delegates than Stenehjem"Burgum and I are two very different candidates What we share in common is . that delegates are tired of the status quo" he saidBecker said he will abide by the convention’s outcome and has respectfully declined requests from the Libertarian Party to be its candidate for governorRest of GOP fieldThe GOP has other contested races:Auditor: Former Bismarck Tribune publisher Brian Kroshus and current Public Service Commission accounting manager Josh Gallion will square off for the chance to replace state Auditor Robert R Peterson who will retire this year after 20 years in officeUS House: Perennial candidate DuWayne Hendrickson of Minot will try to upset US Rep Kevin Cramer as he seeks the endorsement for a third two-year termSuperintendent of Public Instruction: State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler could face a challenge from Four Winds High School teacher Joe Chiang as she seeks the party’s letter of support for a second four-year term in the nonpartisan postIn uncontested races Greater North Dakota Chamber vice president Jon Godfread who stands 6-foot-11 and once played professional basketball in Germany has come off the bench to run for the insurance commissioner’s post being vacated by Adam HammIncumbent state Treasurer Kelly Schmidt is expected to bank the endorsement for a fourth term in office while Public Service Commissioner Julie Fedorchak appointed to the three-member panel in 2013 and elected to a two-year term in 2014 is seeking the nod for a four-year termUS Sen John Hoeven will have no opponent for the GOP endorsement — and possibly not for the November general election eitherDemocratic-NPL Party chairwoman Kylie Oversen said she expects the party will field a House challenger for Cramer but the Senate race is unclear with no challenger yet for Hoeven the popular former governor"That’s one that we haven’t focused a lot of time on" she saidThe state GOP delegates — there are slots for up to 2070 — also will elect 25 of the 28 delegates the party will send to the Republican National Convention in July in ClevelandNorth Dakota’s 28 national delegates are among 112 unbound delegates who could play a crucial role in a contested national convention State party officials said they fully expect nominations from the floor on Saturday and unlike in 2012 they will be well-prepared to print ballots for voting on SundayDemocrats will hold district caucuses in June to elect their national convention delegatesDemocrats rebuildingDemocrats have adopted the convention theme "Honoring the past building the future" as they attempt to make inroads in a state that hasn’t voted for a Democrat for president since 1964Last year marked the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Nonpartisan League in North Dakota and this year is the 60th anniversary of the NPL’s merger with the Democratic Party"It’s important to remember where we came from and those anniversaries give us the opportunity to do that" Executive Director Robert Haider said "It also gives us the opportunity to move forward so we can start rebuilding"Haider and Oversen said the party is focused primarily on winning legislative races — there are 23 Senate seats and 46 House seats up for grabs in even-numbered districts — but also is getting involved in local races by identifying progressives to run for school board city and county offices something it historically hasn’t done"We’re not going to start from the top We’re going to rebuild from the bottom up" Haider saidOversen said she hopes to have candidates prepped for the convention for all but one or two statewide races and she expects some nominations from the floorAs for sharing the event center with the circus she said it’s good for a laugh but won’t change how the party conducts its business"It’s not the first time that we’ve had odd pairings when we’ve used large convention centers" she said’A downward slide’Former Democratic Lt Gov Lloyd Omdahl a retired University of North Dakota political science professor said he couldn’t recall the party ever having so many unfilled statewide slots this close to the convention"This is the first time that it looks like a whole slate is missing practically" he said"This has always been a problem with Democrats" he added "There have always been conventions where they’ve had to draft people at the last minute I don’t know if it’s because maybe there was never a big stable"Omdahl who technically is still secretary of the NPL’s executive committee said there are no internal feuds in the party"It’s just that everything seems to have lapsed The organization seems to have lapsed" he saidOversen a UND law student said she was surprised to find when she was picked as chairwoman in March 2015 that the party didn’t have a strategic plan One has since been draftedChuck Fleming who served as chief of staff for North Dakota’s last Democratic governor George Sinner said Democrats have struggled because they’ve failed to effectively articulate policy differences they’ve had difficulty finding candidates willing to go up against entrenched GOP incumbents they’ve been handicapped by good economic times before the recent oil slowdown and they haven’t focused on building a solid organization from the precinct level up"When you combine those things—it produces negative results at the polls" he said in an emailed statementOversen acknowledged the party has been on "a little bit of a downward slide" but noted it didn’t happen in just one election cycle"The building back up takes just as much time" she saidConvention schedulesBelow are the tentative schedules for theRepublicanandDemocratic-NPL state conventions Specific times for all eventswere not availableDemocratic-NPL
