Heitkamp Releases Ad Touting Bipartisanship: ‘I Voted Over Half the Time with Pres. Trump’
Heitkamp Releases New Ad Touting Bipartisanship: ‘That’s Why I Voted Over Half the Time With President Trump’ (The Washington Free Beacon)
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D., N.D.) on Tuesday released a new campaign ad touting a familiar message the senator hopes will win her reelection in 2018: her willingness to reach across the aisle and work with President Donald Trump on multiple issues.
The ad, titled "Answer," is Heitkamp's third of the current election cycle. It highlights how the senator, who first assumed office in 2013, has attempted to work across party lines to support some of Trump's initiatives, according to NBC News.
"When I ran for the Senate six years ago, I said I wouldn't vote the party line, because I don't think either party has all the answers," she says in the new ad. "That's why I voted over half the time with President Trump. And that made a lot of people in Washington mad, but when I agree with him, I vote with him."
