"With Washington so divided, Heidi is a rare senator who doesn't get bogged down by partisan politics - she knows both sides of the aisle have good ideas", Libby Schneider, Heitkamp's campaign manager wrote in a statement accompanying the ad, "Heidi brings small-town North Dakota common sense to the Senate, and that's why she's been successful getting real results for the folks she serves". A few hundred protesters, many of them clutching signs, rallied outside Scheels Arena, but they were outnumbered by supporters who also greeted Trump's motorcade and waited outside the rally. The California congresswoman told people to "push back on them", but her remarks drew scorn from Republicans and Democrats alike.
The Fargo rally honed Mr. Trump's stump speech that will be repeated throughout the campaign season.
He banged on Democrats throughout his speech, using Crowley's shocking loss to slam Pelosi and by extension North Dakota's Democratic Sen.
Expect Trump to be especially fired up for this one.
President Trump met with a bipartisan group of six senators at the White House Thursday night to discuss the Supreme Court vacancy left by the looming retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. But Wednesday night, the president made clear that has changed in a major way.
All of this is true, which is why Cramer began to smell a rat this month when Trump kept playing nice with Heitkamp.
President Donald Trump set to hold a rally tonight in Fargo, North Dakota. Heidi Heitkamp. The president described Cramer as "a special person", an "incredible person" and a "good guy". In a recent ad, Heitkamp boasted that she voted "over half the time" with Trump. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., continues to garner national spotlight as it's anticipated to be one of the tightest races in the 2018 November general election. "Heidi will vote no to any pick we make". "I said I'm not anxious about what's happened in the past, I just want to talk about what we're going to do moving forward", Cramer said.
Heitkamp joined Democrats in voting against tax cuts Trump enacted past year.
"I want Nancy Pelosi right where she is", he said, making a "plea" to his "Democratic friends". He also told Trump he would "be with you 100 percent of the time". "Please keep Maxine Waters on the air as your face and your mouthpiece for the Democrats".
"You need a senator who doesn't just talk like they're from North Dakota, but votes like they're from North Dakota".
When Trump and Heitkamp were still on friendly terms, the former reportedly asked her to change parties.
Trump urged the election of more Republican senators, saying the current 51-49 GOP majority is a "problem".
