Senator Feinstein Hosting A Posh Fundraiser For Heitkamp
For Tony Bennett his love waited in San Francisco, for Heidi Heitkamp today it’s thousands in campaign contributions from Dianne Feinstein (D-California) and her liberal pals.
For a mere $15,000 anyone from San Francisco can personally claim that they’re a friend of Heidi Heitkamp, while for $35,000 any Bay Area liberal can be an official sponsor of Heitkamp’s campaign to “bring the North Dakota Way to Washington.”
What’s also worth noting is how exactly Heidi’s friend Sen. Feinstein is on the issues. In 2011, Feinstein voted with President Obama 99% of the time, she opposes the Keystone XL Pipeline, and the liberal group Americans for Democratic Action in 2008 labeled her more liberal than her counterpart Barbara Boxer.
Heitkamp and Feinstein can also swap stories about their unwavering support of ObamaCare.
“It’s funny how the road from North Dakota to Washington keeps leading Heitkamp through the hills of San Francisco and Los Angeles,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokesman Lance Trover. “If North Dakotans want to see who Heidi Heitkamp will stand with in Washington, they don’t need to look any further than to see who she is hobnobbing with in San Francisco.”

Feinstein Has Opposed Efforts To Build The Keystone XL Pipeline. “Hoeven, R-N.D., amendment no. 1537 that would provide for approval of the Keystone XL pipeline between Canada and the United States. It would require that the route for the pipeline in Nebraska be submitted by the state of Nebraska. It also would provide for certain environmental protections.” (S. 1813, CQ Vote #34, Rejected by a vote of 56-42: D 11-40; R 45-0; I 0-2, 3/8/12, Feinstein Voted Nay)
Sacramento Bee: “Who’s More Liberal? Barbara Boxer Or Dianne Feinstein? If You Think It’s Boxer, You’re Wrong – At Least According To The Liberal Group Americans For Democratic Action, Which Ranks Washington Politicians Each Year. In 2009, The Washington-Based Group Said Both Senators Were Perfectly Liberal And Gave Them Scores Of 100. But In 2008, Feinstein Received A Score Of 100 From The Group, While Boxer Scored 95.” (“The Buzz: Who’s More Liberal, Boxer Or Feinstein?” [CA] Sacramento Bee, 7/6/10)
