Vatican joins war on womenThe Vatican in its misguided imposition on American nuns has joined the “War on Women.” Karl Rove is doing his own imposition, and he has his sights on Heidi Heitkamp, our U.S. Senate candidate.
This is no surprise. Heitkamp is a strong candidate who has the stature, intelligence and integrity to represent all of us, male or female, urban and rural. She’s also effective, as she showed us as state tax commissioner and attorney general.
If you don’t believe her strength, just watch Karl Rove’s Crossroads organization attack ads coming at her fast and furious. Crossroads wants to stop her. It’s only beginning. He’s doing the same against Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri.
It’s my hope that North Dakota voters can see past this ugliness and select the candidate who can best represent our collective interests in the U.S. Senate.
