This is interesting. Apparently, not all Democrats are running against Trump this fall. In a new political ad, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota actually brags about voting with Trump. That’s going to make the Resistance very angry.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Heitkamp Releases New Ad Touting Bipartisanship: ‘That’s Why I Voted Over Half the Time With President Trump’
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D., N.D.) on Tuesday released a new campaign ad touting a familiar message the senator hopes will win her reelection in 2018: her willingness to reach across the aisle and work with President Donald Trump on multiple issues.
The ad, titled “Answer,” is Heitkamp’s third of the current election cycle. It highlights how the senator, who first assumed office in 2013, has attempted to work across party lines to support some of Trump’s initiatives, according to NBC News.
“When I ran for the Senate six years ago, I said I wouldn’t vote the party line, because I don’t think either party has all the answers,” she says in the new ad. “That’s why I voted over half the time with President Trump. And that made a lot of people in Washington mad, but when I agree with him, I vote with him.”
Heitkamp’s latest ad follows a Washington Post interview with hers Republican opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer, who has been frustrated with Trump extolling Heitkamp with complimentary words.

Heidi Heitkamp is playing smart politics here. North Dakota is conservative and there are a lot of Trump fans in the state.
