Conservative Group Runs Digital Ad for North Dakota Democrat

A conservative advocacy group funded by the billionaire Koch brothers has announced a digital advertising campaign for a North Dakota Democrat, whose seat is seen as vulnerable in the midterm election.

The group Americans for Prosperity announced Friday that it is running a digital advertisement for U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp. The ad thanks Heitkamp for co-sponsoring a bill that rolls back regulations placed on banks after the 2008 financial crisis.

Heitkamp has made her ability to cross the aisle a selling point in her re-election bid, where she’ll likely face Republican U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer. Her seat is considered highly vulnerable in a state Trump carried by almost 36 percentage points in 2016.
