Heidi Heitkamp Statement on July 4
MANDAN, ND – Former North Dakota Attorney General and U.S. Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp released the following statement:
“I want to wish all of my fellow North Dakotans a safe and happy Independence Day. This day always makes me reflect and be thankful for being an American. What a wonderful country we have been blessed to live in, a country where the daughter of a school cook and a seasonal construction worker is now able to travel around this great state as a candidate for the United States Senate. I will always be grateful for the opportunities and the freedoms that are the foundation of this country and have allowed me to get to where I am today.”
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.
