Bipartisanship

The importance of bipartisanship and collaboration has been a fervent topic of the Democrats. It is essential to remember, however, that bipartisanship is not the objective. Instead passing honest, reliable and effective legislation is, and should be, the top priority of our national leaders.

Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp, emphasizes the importance of bipartisanship, but continually fails to follow through with her words. Her voting record clearly proves that she does not have the best interest of North Dakotans in mind. Sen. Heitkamp has voted against tax reform, health care, North Dakota energy, and pro-life legislation that would greatly benefit the people of North Dakota. During the Obama administration she voted 88% with the Democratic party line and President Obama.

Thankfully, Representative Kevin Cramer has the interests of North Dakotans at the forefront of his mind. Kevin has done and will continue to do what is best for his constituents. It is wonderful that we now have a president who agrees with North Dakotans and Congressman Kevin Cramer, allowing Kevin to see many of his important issues move forward. When elected to the Senate, Kevin will continue to advocate for the best interests of the people of North Dakota.
