Letter: Out-of-step Heitkamp doesn’t understand ND wayAs a woman attending college at North Dakota State University, I am sick and tired of Heidi Heitkamp’s relentless attacks on Rick Berg supposedly on behalf of North Dakotans everywhere. Heitkamp just doesn’t understand what North Dakotans believe in.
How can she claim to be on our side when she supports the liberal elite like Harry Reid and Barack Obama? How can she claim to be on our side when she supports Obamacare while 70 percent of North Dakotans adamantly oppose it? How can she be on our side when she supports harmful government regulations on our small businesses and farms?
Time and time again, Heitkamp has proved that her views are out of touch with North Dakotans. We spend within our means and believe in individual liberty, while Heitkamp believes in reckless spending and giving power to Washington. If Heitkamp ever got the chance to be our next senator, she would be out of line with North Dakotans’ beliefs on nearly every issue.
We need to stand up to Heitkamp as she does not have the best interests of North Dakota in mind.
