FILE -- Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), exits the lobby of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, Dec. 2, 2016. Though Donald Trump has yet to name a Democrat to his Cabinet, Heitkamp is said to be a top contender to lead the Department of Agriculture — a posting that would also trigger a special election to fill her Senate seat.

Senator Heitkamp Sends Email to Constituents Retracting Misleading Tax Reform Talking Point

The saga of the bogus talking point deployed by Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s office as political cover for her vote against tax reform continues today. Last week I wrote about Heitkamp claiming that North Dakotans could get a $10,000 tax hike if the tax reform expires, something that’s absolutely false. That resulted in the Senator deleting

Senator Heidi Heitkamp Continues to Use Bogus, Retracted Talking Point About Tax Reform

In a sign of just how desperate Senator Heidi Heitkamp and her allies are to muddy the waters around her vote against tax reform, she is continuing to use a debunked talking point about the impact of that reform she retracted last week. In a December 7 tweet (since deleted) Heitkamp claimed that tax reform

Senator Heitkamp Posts Misleading Figures About Tax Reform on Social Media

I don’t think North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp voted on the tax reform bill’s merits. I think she voted the way her party bosses told her, and now after the fact she and her political allies are justifying it with exaggeration, hyperbole, and even outright falsehoods. Case in point, check out this tweet the Senator

Senator Heitkamp’s Partisan Vote Against Tax Reform Hurts Her Reelection Chances in 2018

Late yesterday – or early this morning, depending on how you look at it –  the U.S. Senate passed H.R. 1. That’s the tax cut bill you’ve been hearing so much about. It passed on a 51-49 vote, with every single Democrat in the Senate saying no. Including North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp. Now she

Border States Electric CEO Says She Won’t Be Challenging Senator Heitkamp This Cycle

Tammy Miller, CEO of Border States Electric, had been considering seeking the NDGOP nomination for the United States Senate. If she’d won that nomination it would have pitted her against Democratic incumbent Heidi Heitkamp. But this morning Miller told me she has decided not to run. “Earlier this year, I was approached to consider a

According to a report in the Tioga Tribune, oil field consultant and State Board of Higher Education member Kathy Neset will not be running for the U.S. Senate this cycle. Though she’s not ruling out a future run. “I hope the time comes again,” she told her hometown paper. “I’d love to serve in the Senate

No, Senator Heitkamp, Al Franken Hasn’t Really Apologized

In the wake of accusations against Senator Al Frank (D-Minnesota) by model and broadcaster Leeann Tweeden, in which she claims that he forced a kiss on her and groped her breasts, fellow Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp announced that she’d be donating to charity Franken’s contributions to her campaign: Senator Franken’s conduct was inappropriate and unacceptable

Will Senator Heidi Heitkamp Return Campaign Money From Clinton Ally Who Lobbied for the Russians?

Senator Heidi Heitkamp was an early supporter of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 run for the White House, so it’s not surprising that the Senator has received a lot of money from the Clinton political network. But some of that money now has a taint to it. Tony Podesta, a powerful lobbyist and brother to Clinton campaign

Poll: Senator Heitkamp’s Popularity Has Fallen Off Since Summer, Biggest Slide Measured in the Senate

Not so long ago Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tom Campbell’s campaign released polling showing the challenger ahead of incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp. There was much scoffing about the poll, as perhaps there should be for any survey conducted and released by a political campaign, but now new numbers from Morning Consult indicate there may be
