2018 Senate race: Kevin Cramer lets veterans take on Heidi Heitkamp in new campaign ad

“Who doesn’t like Heidi?” asks a new campaign ad for Kevin Cramer in the heated North Dakota battle for Heidi Heitkamp’s seat in the seat. “But I don’t like the way she votes in Washington.”

The powerful ad, check it out below, aims to cement support from veterans in the pro-Trump state as the mid-term election nears.

The most recent poll, a Mason-Dixon poll actually puts Cramer ahead of Heitkamp by four percentage points, 48 to 44 percent — just within the margin of error.

The poll was conducted last month and surveyed more than 600 likely voters. Eight percent of voters said they remain undecided. Among men, Cramer has an edge of 55 percent support to Heitkamp’s 39, while Heitkamp is preferred by women, 49 percent to Cramer’s 41.

This new ad corresponds with bad news for Cramer’s camp as the Koch Brothers’ Leaders of Americans for Prosperity made the announcement Monday that they will not be supporting Cramer. The group has been dissatisfied with some Trump administration initiatives, particularly its aggressive trade policy and tariffs.

Cramer responded to the group’s announcement by leaving the door open to collaboration in the Senate, if he is elected.

“I respect the decision by the Koch network to not engage in the North Dakota Senate race. As I have always said, I work for the people of North Dakota and will always vote with them in mind. That is why I supported tax cuts, jobs creation, patient centered healthcare, strong borders, free, fair and reciprocal trade, and a strong military and veterans’ care,” Cramer said in a statement released by his campaign. “My voting record may not be exactly what every national organization wants, but it is exactly what the majority of North Dakotans expect. I look forward to working with the Koch organization on the things we agree on in the United State Senate.”
