Congressional Candidate Watch: Help Heidi Heitkamp Hang On in North Dakota!

My Approved PortraitsHeidi Heitkamp is North Dakota’s dynamic junior senator and is facing one of the toughest races in the country this year. Her state went for Trump by 36 points, and she’s facing North Dakota’s at-large congressman, Kevin Cramer, who was asked by Trump several times to join the race. However, Trump’s trade war tariffs loom large in her rural, white state — precisely the voters that the Democratic party is trying to attract — so there is good momentum in her favor. Let’s help keep this great woman legislator working for North Dakota and for the US.

A businesswoman and lawyer, Senator Heitkamp has been bi-partisan in her politics and focuses closely on what she thinks is good for her state. While she has voted for most Trump cabinet picks, she voted against tax reform and efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. She is working on energy issues in ways that appeal to her state’s energy interests but also to the environmental sector: she led the way with a carbon-capture bill in Congress. Senator Heitkamp is exactly the right representative for her state as well as for the women, girls, and men of our country.

WNDC can help Heidi keep her state in her tough race!
