Trump Enters Senate Race, Says Heitkamp “Always Will Vote No When We Need Her”

After weeks of Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s campaign pushing a narrative which held that President Donald Trump – a man who in the 2016 cycle the Democrats were describing as vile and unfit for office – liked Heitkamp more than her Republican challenger Kevin Cramer. Heitkamp has also invested a lot of money and political capital

Poll: Trump’s Approval in North Dakota Is Down From His Early Days in Office but Steady

According to polling from Morning Consult, President Donald Trump’s approval rating in North Dakota is down significantly from the early days of his administration, though it’s been relatively since that drop-off last year. This is important because Trump has become a big factor in North Dakota’s statewide races. Particularly in the U.S. Senate race which

As Cramer Feuds With the White House, Heitkamp Launches Another Ad Aligning Herself With Trump

Incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s decision to go all-in on being a Trump ally this election cycle is one hell of a gamble. The risk is that she’ll alienate her left-wing base. We’ve already heard rumblings of that from our state’s Native American communities. The risk is that it won’t be very believable. Remember that in

Print Column: Cramer Campaign Is Under Fire on All Fronts

MINOT, N.D.—I loved from the outset the dynamics of a Cramer vs. Heitkamp Senate race. Rep. Kevin Cramer is the happy warrior. He engages with feisty town hall attendees, and subjects himself to zingers from callers during his weekly talk radio segments on shows around the state. It contrasts well with Sen. Heidi Heitkamp who

Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., was called to the podium in Bismarck in May 2016 by presidential candidate Donald Trump, who cited Cramer's energy expertise and early backing in his quest for the Republican Party nomination for president. File photo by Tom Stromme / Bismarck Tribune

It Sure Seems Like President Trump Just Snubbed Senate Candidate Kevin Cramer

Weeks ago North Dakota Democrats, and Senate incumbent Heidi Heitkamp’s campaign, began pushing a narrative about a potential rift between Heitkamp’s challenger, Republican Congressman Kevin Cramer, and Donald Trump. The state party even went so far as to publish a video mocking Cramer because Heitkamp got to stand closer to Trump than he did during

With Heitkamp Touting When She’s Voted With Trump, Cramer Highlights When She Voted Against Him

Late last week Congressman Kevin Cramer’s campaign for the U.S. Senate dropped their first television ad of the 2018 cycle (that previous ad featuring his opponent, incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp, shouting her support for former Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was apparently just a digital buy). Here’s the ad: Cramer TV Ad "Tax Cut" from Cramer

North Dakota’s Democrats, Desperate to Re-Elect Heidi Heitkamp, Suddenly Love Donald Trump

Back in 2016 the North Dakota Democratic Party, as you might expect, were not fans of President Donald Trump. In October 2016 our Democratic friends were pointing out that Republicans had refused to acknowledge that Trump was, according to them, unfit for office. “All of North Dakota’s elected statewide Republicans have refused to distance themselves

Video: Democratic Senate Candidate Heidi Heitkamp Wants Donald Trump to Love Her So Badly It’s Kind of Painful to Watch

For days now North Dakota Democrats have – bizarrely, given their party’s white hot hatred of the man at the national level – been bombarding the public with messaging suggesting that President Donald Trump likes Senator Heidi Heitkamp more than her Republican opponent Kevin Cramer. “Cryin’ Cramer whines to White House about their cooperation with

Kevin Cramer Would Like Heidi Heitkamp to Stop Bragging About Her Relationship With Donald Trump

Maybe the most interesting nugget about North Dakota’s U.S. Senate race in this Washington Examiner article is the reporting of an internal poll which apparently shows Congressman Kevin Cramer up six points over incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp. More on that in a moment. The headline from the article is that Cramer apparently paid a visit

Democrats Have Created a Situation Where Good Trade News for America Is Bad Political News for Them

Last month Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp predicted that President Donald Trump’s “drastic trade policies would instead come back to hit American farmers and ranchers where it hurts.” “I urge the administration to rethink its unwise actions on trade before irreparable damage is done,” Mac Schneider, Democratic candidate for the U.S. House, said. The politics of
