Senator Elizabeth Warren Would Really, Really Like You to Re-Elect Heidi Heitkamp

Earlier this year the National Republican Senatorial Committee announced that they were launching an ad campaign against North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp, trying to tie her voting record to that of far-left Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. “During her time in Washington, Heidi Heitkamp has positioned herself squarely on the left, voting with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth

Heitkamp Tries to Distance Herself From Elizabeth Warren While Accusing Republicans of Creating a “Boogeyman”

It’s a common tactic, and an effective one, for political campaigns to try and tie a given opponent to the more extreme elements of their party. Republicans are currently trying to do that to Senator Heidi Heitkamp, noting that both she and rant-happy Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren are both, you know, Democrats. “The NRSC is

I found of a couple of emails mentioning North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp that are pretty interesting. The first is a June 9, 2015 email sent by

Democrats Join With Republicans To Repeal Obamacare Tax, Heidi Heitkamp Nowhere To Be Found

Back during her campaign for the US Senate, the one in which she cloaked herself with the “independent” mantle while distancing herself from her party, Senator Heidi Heitkamp said that Obamacare was “good and bad” and “needs to be fixed.” Right now there’s a bi-partisan group of Republican and Senate Democrats who want to do

Democrat Senator Wants To Know Why The Minimum Wage Isn’t $22 Per Hour

“If we started in 1960, and we said that, as productivity goes up — that is, as workers are producing more — then the minimum wage is going to go up the same,” said Senator Elizabeth Warren to University of Massachusetts professor economics Arindrajit Dube in a hearing of the Senate Committee on Health, Education,
