Cramer’s loyalty to Trump complicates Heitkamp’s court vote

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Republican Kevin Cramer’s hopes for helping his party pick up a critical Senate seat in North Dakota are closely tied to President Donald Trump.

Cramer says he’s “100 percent” with Trump on policy — a savvy bet in a state Trump carried by 36 points two years ago and where he remains popular.

Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is arguing the state needs someone who isn’t “going to just follow the herd.”

The first-term senator and former state attorney general is one of 10 Democratic senators trying to hold states Trump won in November.

The race is among a handful of close contests that could decide whether Republicans keep control of the Senate, where they have a 51-49 majority.
