Vice President Mike Pence blasted Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) in her own backyard on Tuesday, while speaking to an America First Policies event in Fargo.

Citing the Trump administration’s accomplishments, Pence told the crowd that Heitkamp was nowhere to be found when it came to helping North Dakotans.

“We believe our tax cuts are going to save the typical family of four in North Dakota more than $2,600 every year,” Pence said. The vice president also predicted that many workers would see as much as $4,500 in raises.

Pence credited Sen. John Hoeven (R-ND) and Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) for supporting Trump’s efforts. “You might have noticed the same can’t be said for your other senator,” he said, referring to Heitkamp.

“The people of North Dakota deserve to know that when it came time to cut your taxes, Senator Heidi Heitkamp voted ‘no,'” Pence said.

A member of the audience yelled out, “She’s gone!” The audience responded with wild applause.

“When it came to letting North Dakota families keep $2,600 more of your hard-earned money, Heidi Heitkamp voted ‘no.’ When it came to providing North Dakota farmers the relief they deserve from the death tax, Heidi Heitkamp voted ‘no,'” he continued.

The vice president also slammed Heitkamp for her support for “job-killing” environmental regulations. “She even voted ‘no’ on protecting the unborn,” he said.

“Heidi Heitkamp hasn’t been putting North Dakota first,” Pence added. “I think the people of North Dakota deserve better.”
