Letter: Which switch is next, for Sen. Heitkamp?In the last couple weeks, we’ve learned two things about Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D. She is unprincipled (with her dramatic “change of heart”) and can be purchased (joining the slew of recent Democratic “converts”; even coordinating within the same hour the declaration of red-state senator freshman Joe Donnelly).
Will gun control be next? Will we soon hear a similar soul-searched declaration: “In speaking with North Dakotans from every corner of our great state, and much personal reflection, I have concluded the federal government should have the power to infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms”? … Perhaps only if the vote is close.
