     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - U.S. Sen. John Hoeven says North Dakota will receive $10 million from the federal government to help pay state law enforcement bills related to months of protests over the Dakota Access pipeline. The state applied to the Justice Department's Emergency Federal Law Enforcement Assistance Program in late June. Hoeven announced the $10 million award on Tuesday. North Dakota is facing a $38 million bill for protest-related costs.
 
    Gov. Doug Burgum says the $10 million is a "good start toward recovering the significant costs incurred as a result of the Obama administration's irresponsible inaction."  Burgum says they will continue to pursue all available avenues for reimbursing North Dakota taxpayers.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Republican state Sen. Tom Campbell, who cites Donald Trump's popularity in North Dakota as a selling point for his U.S. Senate bid, says Trump didn't intend to "be cold" in his handling of a deadly white nationalist rally in Virginia.

    Campbell announced his Senate bid Wednesday for the seat held by Democrat Heidi Heitkamp. He says Trump would have been criticized no matter what he said about the demonstration that left three dead. Campbell says it was a "horrible incident" that was "an act of terrorism."

    Campbell, of Grafton, says he wants to partner with Trump, who won the state by 36 percentage points. Campbell says Heitkamp is "against just about everything Trump's trying to do."

    Heitkamp hasn't officially announced her re-election plans. A spokeswoman for Heitkamp declined to comment about Campbell's announcement.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A former Democratic state lawmaker is running for North Dakota's seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Ben Hanson, a commercial real estate broker from Fargo, announced Wednesday that he is seeking the position that Republican Kevin Cramer has held since 2012. Hanson served in the state House from 2013 to 2016.

    A spokesman for Cramer, who has not announced his political plans, did not immediately return phone and email messages seeking comment.

    Hanson says Cramer has lost focus on issues that matter to North Dakotans and "instead has become part of the mess that is Washington D.C."

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Stockmen's Association and the North Dakota Corn Growers Association have both launched efforts to help ranchers devastated by drought. A relief fund administered by the Stockmen's is accepting donations. The Corn Growers group is urging farmers to provide free or low-cost corn grazing or corn stalk bales to ranchers. Many ranchers are selling off cattle they can't feed or searching for affordable hay.
