Heitkamp’s Hypocrisy on full display

Heidi Heitkamp’s willingness to raise nearly all her campaign money from out-of-state donors is raising eyebrows.

In today’s Dickinson Press, Heitkamp is heavily chastised for failing to have “enough character to practice what she preaches when it comes to her own political organization.” Heitkamp has been very vocal about the damaging influence of out-of-state money on North Dakota politics. Yet that didn’t stop her from taking 94.5% of her donations in Q2 from individuals living in liberal safe havens like San Francisco, New York City, and Washington D.C. As today’s article states, the bottom line is Heitkamp, “needs to explain the disparity in her positions.”

“This is the latest example of Heidi Heitkamp’s hypocrisy,” said NRSC Spokesman Michael McAdams. “North Dakotans are sick and tired of politicians like Heitkamp saying one thing and doing another.”
