Podcast: Cramer Says Election Might Force Heitkamp to Be “a Yes” for “Whoever Trump Puts Forward” for Supreme Court


Cable news analyst and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski joined me on the radio show today to talk about the President’s visit to Fargo today.

He addressed the campaign between Congressman Kevin Cramer and incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp. “Democrats say one thing in the state they represent and another thing in Washington D.C.,” he told me when I asked about Heitkamp’s campaign messaging which touts how often the Democratic Senator votes for Trump’s policy agenda.

“You’re going to see Fargo rocking,” he said of tonight’s Trump rally.

Congressman Cramer was also on the program, and reacted to the breaking news about Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his retirement. He noted that Heitkamp actually voted for a filibuster against Trump’s previous SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch before ultimately voting to confirm him. He also noted that politics might force Heitkamp to vote for whoever Trump nominates this year.

If the nomination comes to a vote before election day “I suppose she’ll be a yes for whoever Trump puts forward,” Cramer said.

He also commented on the failed immigration bill vote in the House today. He said he voted for the bill and that Republicans who voted against it let the “perfect become the enemy of the good.”
