Here Comes the Reinforcements! President Clinton to help Heidi Heitkamp in close North Dakota Senate Race!
The Secretary of Explaining Stuff (the one and only President Bill Clinton) is headed to Fargo, North Dakota tonight to support former Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp in her neck and neck race to beat back GOP freshman Congressman Rick Berg for the North Dakota Senate seat of retiring Democrat Kent Conrad. This is an interesting development and shows that the Democrats believe we can win this race!
The “Rally with Heidi” is scheduled for Monday, October 29th at the Fargo Civic Center, 207 4th Street N, in beautiful downtown Fargo! Doors open at 6:00 PM CST and the event will kick-off at 7:00 PM.

National attention has been focused on this race as it has tightened over the summer, polls show a deadlock or a Heitkamp + 3 or Berg +3, depending on what poll you read. As you may all remember, Congressman Berg’s extreme views have been put under the microscope, he introduced ND House Bill 1489, which would make abortion a class AA felony, even in the case of rape or incest. As we see the fallout from Missouri GOP Senate Candidate Todd "legitimate rape" Aiken and Indiana GOP Senate Candidate Richard "gift from God" Mourdock. This race is too close to call and it should not be overlooked!
North Dakota could decide the democratic majority and Heidi is a champion for the middle class, the farmer, and of course she is the only candidate in the race who has a Native American platform and a Native American staff member, the Three Affiliated Tribes’ own Diane Johnson
Heidi has invited Tribal leaders from across the State for this event and I know that many members of my Tribe (Sissseton-Wahpeton Oyate of the Lake Traverse Reservation) are heading to Fargo, including my mom, Lake Traverse District Chairperson Beverly Thompson, my Aunt and former Tribal Chairperson, Lorraine Rousseau and Winfield Rondell, Jr., Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate Tribal Secretary. Sisseton-Wahpeton is well represented!
It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for the people of North Dakota to see the Secretary of Explaining Stuff and former POTUS William Jefferson Clinton.
If you can’t attend, consider donating! Heidi can win this for Indian Country and for the Democrats of North Dakota!
