Heidi Heitkamp is playing politics with North Dakota farmers

Yesterday Rep. Kevin Cramer was appointed to the Farm Bill Conference Committee, a major win for North Dakota’s farmers and ranchers who will have a voice on our nation’s ag policy for years to come.

But you wouldn’t know this from listening to Heidi Heitkamp.

Heitkamp’s team shamelessly called this victory for North Dakota farmers “politics at its worst.” Her allies curiously tried to argue Cramer’s appointment doesn’t matter since it was through a different committee, even though ND Democrat Earl Pomeroy was appointed the same way in 2008.

When will Heidi Heitkamp finally end these partisan attacks and focus on serving the needs of North Dakotans?

“Heidi Heitkamp is so out of touch and desperately trying to win reelection that she’s forgotten what is good for her state,” said Jake Wilkins, North Dakota Republican Party spokesman. “While Kevin Cramer is focused on being a strong voice for North Dakota’s farmers and ranchers, it’s clear Heidi Heitkamp only wants to disparage her opponent to save her failing campaign.”
