Do We Only Care About Security Costs When Republicans Visit North Dakota?

President Trump has made multiple visits to Fargo this election cycle in support of U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Cramer, and the reaction from incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s surrogates in the press was to get bent out of shape about the cost of security.

Poll: Cramer Leads Heikamp by 9 Points

There is scant publicly-available polling in North Dakota’s U.S. Senate race, despite the competition garnering national attention, and that’s been frustrating.

The most recent publicly available polling in North Dakota’s hotly contested Senate race was a Strategic Research Associates survey which showed Cramer up 16 points.
