Group Adds Heitkamp to List of Senate Dems Targeted for Tax Cut Opposition

Just a week after Sens. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) received bad news to the tune of $4 million – the amount a conservative group is spending on ads pointing out their opposition to tax cuts – Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) received nearly half-a-million dollars in bad news herself.

Americans for Prosperity (AFP), the group behind $4 million in new ads against Donnelly and McCaskill, is spending another $450,000 pointing out Heitkamp’s opposition to last December’s bill.

Politico reported (paywall):

The 30-second ad features a female narrator describing how Heitkamp “took hundreds of thousands from well-connected special interests and then gave special interests billions in taxpayer handouts.”

The ad in its entirety is here:

Last month, the GOP successfully recruited its top choice for the race against Heitkamp, Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND). As of early March, Cramer had a five-point lead on Heitkamp, according to a poll commissioned by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).
