Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) stumbled through a CNN interview on Thursday, a day after President Trump launched attacks on the vulnerable senator in her home state.

Asked by CNN’s Jeff Zeleny about the president’s request to join the GOP, Heitkamp claimed Trump was joking, and reaffirmed her commitment to the Democratic Party. Or did she?

“I just think that you have to be who you are,” she said. “At the end of the day, I’m an FDR Republican.”

The Democrat caught herself, quickly adding, “Or a Democrat!”

“I’m an FDR Democrat,” she concluded.

Heitkamp is one of ten Democratic senators up for re-election in states that Trump won in 2016.

Last night, Trump accused the senator of partisanship, claiming that the day after the election, she will vote with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) every day of the week.
