We are One Country; Senator Heidi Heitkamp
Heidi Heitkamp is a former senator from North Dakota. She was the first female senator ever elected from North Dakota and served from 2013 to 2019.
As a former senator from one of the most rural states in the country, Senator Heitkamp saw first-hand the slow erosion of rural support for Democrats, which led to a landslide victory for President Donald Trump. Senator Heitkamp, recognizing that rural voters have traditionally been part of the Democratic coalition, is passionate about reopening the dialogue with rural communities, rebuilding trust and respect, and advancing an opportunity agenda for rural Americans.
The One Country Project, led by former Senators Heidi Heitkamp and Joe Donnelly, is working to promote greater opportunities for rural communities and ensure leaders earn their support. One Country is reengaging with rural Americans, serving as a clearinghouse of research and information for rural Americans, and working to ensure leaders regain trust by fighting for these communities.
