National Democrats Release Third Ad in North Dakota

Anyone still wondering whether Democrats believe North Dakota Senate is a real race?

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is going up with its third independent expenditure ad of the cycle -- and like the first two IE ads, it's airing in North Dakota, where Rep. Rick Berg and Democratic nominee Heidi Heitkamp are locked in a tight battle.

The ad calls out Berg for being "one of the richest members of Congress," and hits him on voting to raise his own pay, giving tax breaks to millionaires, and against raising the minimum wage.

Berg "has Washington priorities," the narrator concludes. "And they're not the North Dakota way."

The DSCC also hit Berg on not doing things "the North Dakota way" in their previous ad.

The Republicans are certainly putting their money where their mouth is with this race, too: Crossroads GPS just made an $800,000 ad buy in the state for September and October. And American Commitment, a conservative-aligned 501(c)(4) nonprofit group, is launching a $115,000 ad buy hitting Heitkamp.
