Heitkamp, Cramer unveil new ads

FARGO – Two of North Dakota’s congressional candidates released new ads over the weekend.

Heidi Heitkamp

In hers, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp touts North Dakota’s energy industry, including her decadelong experience as a director with Dakota Gasification Co.

“We’re creating clean natural gas and jobs in North Dakota towns,” Heitkamp says in the ad. “We need more innovation like this, but because of Washington gridlock, it’s not happening.”

The ad’s debut comes less than a week after Heitkamp spoke in Bismarck about her energy plan for America, which includes increasing domestic oil drilling and production, building the Keystone XL pipeline and ending “reckless speculation” of oil futures on the stock market.

Heitkamp again speaks of the need to “put partisan politics aside,” while making no mention of her status as a Democrat.

Republican-endorsed candidate Rep. Rick Berg and Republican Duane Sand are competing against Heitkamp for North Dakota’s Senate seat this year.

Kevin Cramer

Meanwhile, Republican Kevin Cramer has released the second ad of his campaign for North Dakota’s House seat.

The biographical ad seeks to emphasize Cramer’s Republican ties and his conservative record as a public service commissioner and former state tourism director.

“I’ve taken a common-sense approach to economic development, one that creates jobs,” Cramer says. “That’s what Congress needs to hear.”

Cramer is challenging Republican-endorsed candidate Brian Kalk in the June 12th primary. Kalk is also a public service commissioner.

Pam Gulleson is the Democratic candidate in the House race.
