A little wake up call from the Rick Berg campaign as Heidi Heitkamp skips her party’s national convention out of concerns of being tied to their agenda.
The ad uses the controversial footage shot by one of the ND Democrat party’s national committee members. Footage Democrats were so fearful of they were threatening lawsuits over it earlier this year when it was used in ads.
In the footage, Heitkamp predicts an “amazing” Obama presidency and a great “next eight years.” Clearly, the last four years haven’t been all that great even according to the Democrats themselves, which is why Heitkamp and her fellow Democrats tried to keep this footage a secret.
And it’s also remarkable how much Heitkamp has changed from 2008 to 2012. Back then she was an enthusiastic attendee of her party’s national convention, and a staunch supporter of President Obama and his agenda. These days she’s telling media outlets she’s “more of an independent voice” than a Democrat while trying to distance herself from Obama.
If the 2008 version of Heidi Heitkamp ran for Senate she couldn’t get elected, thus the 2012 version of Heidi Heitkamp Democrats have manufactured.
