Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D) started airing a new radio ad on Monday. (Say Anything Blog)

The spot “emphasizes bipartisanship, but specifically she touts her working relationship with President Donald Trump. She said she ‘worked with President Trump to get rid of unnecessary EPA regulations.’

"‘When I agree with the President, I vote with him, and that’s over half my votes,’ Heitkamp continues in the ad, though she also says that the President is aware that she’ll fight back if he’s doing something that would hurt North Dakota.” (Say Anything Blog)

AD. Rep. Kevin Cramer (R) has released a new ad focused on Heitkamp's past support of Hillary Clinton. The voiceover says, "Heidi consistently votes against our North Dakota values." (release)

BREAKING DOWN THE NUMBERS. Cramer “has a big advantage in getting funds from actual North Dakotans, both in terms of percentage and actual dollar amounts.” Nearly half of his fundraising so far has come from in-state, while only 9 percent Heitkamp’s campe from North Dakota. (Say Anything Blog)

Cramer said “a call from oil tycoon Harold Hamm, whose net worth is $18 billion,” convinced him to run for Senate. Cramer: "When Harold talked to my wife Chris, he said, 'if Kevin does this, if you guys get into this, I will be his national finance chairman.' That was pretty compelling.” (WDAY)
