Spends Weekend Raising Money With Far Left Fellow Democratic Senate Candidates
If for some reason you didn’t see Heidi Heitkamp walking the streets of Fargo, Williston, or Bismarck this weekend, it’s probably because she was 2,000 miles away walking the streets of Boston and New York raising money with liberal icons and fellow Democratic Senate candidates Elizabeth Warren and Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin.
Heitkamp spent the weekend raising money with Warren – the self-proclaimed founder of the Occupy movement – the one who Barbara Streisand praised for her unrepentant liberalism. She was also fundraising with Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin – the person who believes ObamaCare didn’t go far enough.
Notably, both Warren and Baldwin are avowed opponents of GOP efforts to move forward on the Keystone Pipeline, even though Heitkamp claims to support its construction when back home in North Dakota. And, don’t forget the goal of this fundraising junket is simply to help keep liberal Harry Reid in place as Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate. As Democratic Leader, Reid has also led efforts to block the construction of Keystone.
“If North Dakotans want to know who Heidi Heitkamp will stand with in the United States Senate, look no further than who she is standing with on the campaign trail as she travels the country with fellow liberals Elizabeth Warren and Tammy Baldwin,” said NRSC Spokesman Lance Trover. “With friends like those, it’s no wonder she believes Barack Obama is ‘amazing’ and thinks ObamaCare was a legacy vote.”

The Boston Globe: “In A New Interview, Democratic Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren Claims Much Of The Credit For The Occupy Wall Street Protests Sweeping The Nation.” (Glen Johnson, “Elizabeth Warren Says She ‘Created Intellectual Foundation’ For Occupy Wall Street Movement,” The Boston Globe, 10/25/11)
Warren Said She “Created Much Of The Intellectual Foundation” For The Occupy Wall Street Protests. “Elizabeth Warren is running for office in the most high-profile race in the country not involving Barack Obama. It’s a position that calls for some tact. So what does she think about the Occupy Wall Street protests that are roiling the country? ‘I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do,’ she says. ‘I support what they do.’” (Samuel P. Jacobs, “Who’s Afraid Of Elizabeth Warren?” The Daily Beast, 10/24/11)
