On Tuesday night in an urgent fundraising email, Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s reelection campaign clamored for more money, while claiming that donors from New York and California were lining up to oppose her.
This is an interesting line of attack from Heitkamp since New York and California are her two largest states for campaign contributions. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Heitkamp’s campaign has received over $1.16 Million from New York donors and over $793,000 from California. Altogether, 92.47% of Heitkamp’s money has come from outside of North Dakota.
Clearly Heitkamp has a bad case of selective memory or doesn’t think out of state spending is an issue as long as it’s in support of her campaign. No wonder 50% of North Dakotans want someone new in the Senate.
“North Dakotans are growing tired of the deceptive and partisan nature of Heidi Heitkamp’s time in the Senate. Fortunately for her, she won’t be forced to sign misleading fundraising emails when she is voted out in November.”- RNC Spokesman Patrick McCann
