Senator Heitkamp Condemns “Dark Money” in Politics Even as It Pays for Ads Touting Her for Re-Election

Earlier this year Senator Heidi Heitkamp announced that she would be joining with Montana Democrat Jon Tester in introducing legislation to “push back against dark money in politics.” “If out-of-state billionaires want to jam North Dakota airwaves with year-round political ads, we should at least know who’s behind them,” she said in a press release

Former North Dakota Democratic Party Chairman Says Senator Heitkamp’s Rejection of #TheResistance Is “Final Straw”

I’ve been writing for some time now about a hard-left faction of the North Dakota Democratic Party being unhappy with Senator Heidi Heitkamp. The only Democrat, I should point out, who has won an election on North Dakota’s statewide ballot since 2008. SAB readers will remember that during the Democratic National Committee convention in 2016

Democrats Already Running Campaign Commercials on Behalf of Heidi Heitkamp

“You may not have noticed it…but the North Dakota Senate campaign for the 2018 cycle has already begun,” I wrote back on April 1. The Democrats keep proving me right, acknowledging that Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s re-election bid (which she hasn’t officially announced yet) is in trouble. That’s why the Democrats have set up an operation

Here at the dawn of what could be a very, very tough re-election campaign Senator Heidi Heitkamp has been cozying up to the North Dakota Chamber of Commerce. The impetus for said coziness is her support (seemingly at odds with her recent voting record) for regulatory reforms the business community wants. Because to win in

Senator Heitkamp’s Words Don’t Match Her Voting Record When It Comes to Regulatory Reform

Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s ability to keep her seat in the U.S. Senate this election cycle rest squarely on her ability to convince North Dakotans that she’s not like other Democrats in key policy areas. Case in point, government regulation. That’s why Heitkamp has been busy patting herself on the back for an initiative she’s started


Senator Heitkamp Sided With Her Party Over North Dakota

I’ve always thought that, when a politician casts a controversial vote, an explanation before that vote is cast is worth a lot more than a justification after the fact. In this op/ed column Senator Heidi Heitkamp does a lot of justifying of her recent vote against overturning an Obama era emissions rule which the state’s

Can North Dakota Democrats Get Their Voters Back From Republicans in 2018?

“I’m betting on Heitkamp against any Republican opponent who’s so far been mentioned,” my friend Mike Jacobs writes today. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, of course, is up for re-election in 2018. She hasn’t officially announced that she’s running yet, but it’s a near certainty she will given how her allies have been out attacking potential Republican

Congressman Cramer and Senator Heitkamp Are Telling Completely Different Stories About Tribe’s Position on Methane Rule

Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s deciding vote killing a “midnight” Obama regulation pertaining to methane emissions has been pretty controversial, but in defending it the Senator claimed she was just following the wishes of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation of the Fort Berthold Reservation. “Support for the rule from the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation was

Heidi Heitkamp Is Running Scared

Senator Heidi Heitkamp is really, super-duper worried about her re-election chances in 2018. She has her surrogates out attacking Rep. Kevin Cramer who she clearly sees as her most likely opponent next year (whether that’s actually the case remains to be seen). She tapped the left wing donor network early and often to put up
