Heidi Heitkamp Primary Night Statement
Mandan, N.D. – Former North Dakota attorney general and U.S. Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp issued the following statement after her uncontested primary night win and Rep. Rick Berg’s victory in the Republican U.S. Senate Primary:
“I congratulate Rep. Berg on his primary victory tonight,” said Heitkamp. “In November, North Dakota has a clear choice. I will set party interests aside, put our country first and get to work creating jobs and balancing the budget, while Rick Berg has voted with his party leaders to give millionaires like himself a tax cut, raise Medicare premiums, and end the guarantee of Medicare for those who can least afford it.”
Today, as a director of the Dakota Gasification synfuels plant, she’s a champion for North Dakota’s energy industry. Heidi believes we need to use all of North Dakota’s rich energy resources wisely, creating and keeping high-paying jobs right here. Heidi says it’s time to put country first, put politics aside and work together to cut government spending, balance the budget, create jobs and get our economy back on track—while protecting North Dakotans.
Heidi lives in Mandan with her husband, Dr. Darwin Lange, a family practitioner. They have two grown children, Ali and Nathan.
