DescriptionPlains Daily debuted in March 2010 the brain child of North Dakota conservative talk-radio host Scott Hennen who was previously best known around the state for interviews with former vice president Dick Cheney and presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann among others. Bachmann has been a particularly vocal supporter calling him the “voice of today’s Tea Party patriots” though Hennen himself might prefer the title of “Chairman of the Common Sense Club” as he declares on his personal site.
