The NDGOP is having some fun at the expense of Heidi Heitkamp and Pam Gulleson today. Heitkamp, specifically, put on her best Sarah Palin routine and now the Republicans want both Heitkamp and Gulleson to join the party.
Here’s a press release sent out by the NDGOP:
Bismarck, N.D. – North Dakota Republican Party Chairman Stan Stein today extended an offer to Democratic US Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp and Democratic US House candidate Pam Gulleson to officially join the Republican Party.
“It is obvious after today’s North Dakota Broadcasters Association debates that Heitkamp and Gulleson are attempting to hide their support of Barack Obama and Washington’s failed Democratic leadership and pretend to be Republicans,” said Stein. “It’s disappointing that this election-year conversion is just a ploy for Heitkamp and Gulleson to cover their support of the Obama-Reid-Pelosi liberal agenda. However, in case they do have an honest change of heart, I want to extend Heitkamp and Gulleson a free membership to the North Dakota Republican Party.”
They even printed up membership cards!
The party also put out this parody of Heidi Heitkamp writing a letter to her good friend and supporter Harry Reid:
