Letter: Congratulations to senator-electI congratulate Sen.-elect Heidi Heitkamp on her fantastic campaign, and her winning of the U.S. senatorial election.
Here is a woman from the small state of North Dakota who overcame the onslaught of mega-millionaire super PACs and their endless slurs and mistruth ads about her. However, Heitkamp fought back these unknown super PAC thugs and showed North Dakotans the real North Dakota way.
I was happy to be one of the first to endorse Heitkamp with a letter to the editor, even before she became a candidate. I knew from watching her work over the years that with her outstanding dedication to all residents of North Dakota, she would be the best choice for our new senator.
Today, Heitkamp is the first woman U.S. senator to be elected in North Dakota.
So congratulations, Heit-kamp. I am looking forward to calling you Sen. Heitkamp.
