We look forward to the expertise he can bring audiences on topics such as agricultural policy, fiscal responsibility and oversight, energy security, and American industry.

Dorgan’s most notable accomplishments included creating a comprehensive energy plan that outlined specific and actionable strategies for our country to implement in our pursuit of energy security, working to fund renewable energy sources like wind, biofuels, and solar energy, expanding North Dakota’s energy sector, providing a strong safety net for family farmers, and spurring economic development in his state.

Senator Dorgan is also the author of the New York Times best-selling book Take This Job and Ship It: How Corporate Greed and Brain-Dead Politics Are Selling Out America, and a newly released book Reckless: How Debt, Deregulation, and Dark Money Nearly Bankrupted America (And How We Can Fix It!).
