The Heidi Heitkamp farewell tour

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) has been skating on thin ice pretty much all of 2018 when it came to her reelection prospects.

But a Heitkamp campaign ad published in the Bismarck Tribune which named sexual assault survivors without permission as well as misidentifying some women as survivors looks to be the final nail in the proverbial coffin. Even though Heitkamp has apologized and her campaign fired a staffer deemed responsible for the ad, it appears some of the women aggrieved are seeking legal counsel. What's even more egregious is one of the women named now lives in fear that her abuser may know of her location.

Given she voted against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court despite a majority of North Dakotans supporting him, Heitkamp was likely laying the groundwork for her post-Senate career. Gotta curry favors with the lefty establishment y'know. However, after this resounding blunder, even those prospects may be in jeopardy.
