2018 Senate Election

Senator Heidi Heitkamp

Heidi Heitkamp is seeking a second term as Senator of North Dakota in what is expected to be one of the most contentious races this November. While Republicans were initially concerned about President Trump potentially working with Heitkamp, he has recently stated that he will campaign for her opponent, Kevin Kramer. Donald Trump won North Dakota by nearly 36 points in 2016, so it will be an uphill battle for Heitkamp to retain her seat, but she will undoubtedly be a Senator Democrats are looking to protect.
