Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - You'd think a book written by a 30 year veteran in the US Senate would be anything but a fictional thriller. Not the case for former US Senator Byron Dorgan.

Dorgan is back in Fargo promoting the new book, "Gridlock." This is Dorgan's 2nd fictional novel and 4th book overall. Some of the characters are from North Dakota. It's about cyber-terrorism, and the terrorists are trying to take of the country's power grid.

Byron Dorgan - Former US Senator: "Fiction is a very different circumstance. Writing fiction is about creating, imagination and so on, but it also is attached to the potential reality and what we need to do to defend ourselves in this new age of cyber terror."

Dorgan is a New York Times best selling author, for his 2006 book "Take This Job and Ship It."
