Heitkamp Sides with Washington Special Interests

Doug Sachtleben - February 07th, 2017

“Many North Dakotans responded to Club for Growth ads and urged Senator Heitkamp to support President Trump’s nominee for Education Secretary.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement after Senator Heidi Heitkamp joined a failed effort by Washington liberals in voting against the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education:

“We know that many North Dakotans responded to calls and ads by the Club for Growth and called Senator Heitkamp’s office to urge her to support President Trump’s nominee for Education Secretary,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “Unfortunately, Senator Heitkamp sided with the power and money of the teachers unions in voting against the president’s nominee, who presents a clear threat to their status quo. The Club for Growth remains committed to alerting Heitkamp’s constituents when she sides with Washington special interests and votes against their conservative pro-growth principles.”
