How can this be according to the drive-by media only Republicans engage in voter suppression and never does a DemocRat suppress votes?
In the latest gaffe in her bid for re-election, U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., endorsed false claims made in a Facebook ad paid for by her state’s Democratic Party that say the state’s hunters could lose their hunting licenses in nearby states if they vote Tuesday.
Heitkamp, who’s trailing Republican challenger Kevin Cramer on average by 11 points, hasn’t backpedaled from the endorsement, telling reporters that it is “really important that people understand the consequences of voting.”
She also said the ad is true. “Voting means you are a resident, it means you pay taxes here, it means that if you want a residential hunting license in Minnesota, it means you’re not going to get that, if you vote here,” Heitkamp said.
Last month, she was forced to apologize after publicly naming victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse in an attack ad aimed at her Republican challenger without their consent.
“I deeply regret this mistake and we are in the process of issuing a retraction, personally apologizing to each of the people impacted by this and taking the necessary steps to ensure this never happens again,” she said in a statement.
Then she was called out for Facebook post that used a photo of a World War II veteran without his permission.
But the most damaging was Heitkamp’s decision to vote against the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. She voted against Kavanaugh even as all the polling showed North Dakotans were less likely to support her if she voted no.
“That spectacle proved to be perhaps the greatest political gift I’ve been given in a very long time,” Cramer told Fox News, referring to the Kavanaugh confirmation process.
