Trump tour heads to North Dakota with Senate seat at stake

President Heads to ND for MAGA Rally

A few hundred protesters, many of them clutching signs, rallied outside Scheels Arena, but they were outnumbered by supporters who also greeted Trump's motorcade and waited outside the rally.

Heitkamp told the AP she's curious how Trump will portray her record, which she says has favored many issues the president cares about, like environmental and banking regulations.

Then the president begged Democrats to "please, please" keep Pelosi as their party leader 'and please keep Maxine Waters on the air as your face and your mouthpiece for the Democrat Party'.

The president will arrive in the "Peace Garden State" Wednesday evening, where he will hold a "Make America Great Again" rally in Fargo.

On Wednesday night, though, Trump backed Cramer and lambasted Heitkamp, calling her a "liberal Democrat" and saying she does the bidding of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. That might make it more of a clear choice in the Senate race this fall, and it's a near-certainty that the Supreme Court fight might eclipse all of these other considerations in a deep-red state like North Dakota.

This week President Donald Trump came to Fargo in support of U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Cramer.

Trump called instead for the election of Republican U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, one of his staunchest allies in Congress. But the president has seemed to have a warmer relationship with Heitkamp than other Democrats - he famously called her a "good woman" during his most recent North Dakota visit past year. She also voted against some of his Cabinet nominees.

Kylie Oversen, the former Democratic-NPL Chair running for tax commissioner, said before the interview she was "definitely curious what the president has to say to North Dakota", adding she didn't believe his policies were in line with the state's agricultural needs. "What I know at this point is we do not have a schedule for a Trump visit", Tim Rasmussen, campaign spokesman, told me. But Kennedy's decision to retire seemed to give him extra firepower, and he said he wanted to pick a jurist who could spend at least 40 years on the court. But both voted to confirm his last Supreme Court nominee, Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Since telling her supporters in weekend remarks that they should harass officials in Trump's government wherever they appear in public, Trump has made Waters, a California congresswoman, a centerpiece of his attacks.

"I think political speeches are political speeches", she said in a phone interview after the Fargo rally Wednesday, June 28. With the upcoming confirmation fight over Anthony Kennedy's successor, Trump seems to have realized that a Republican is more valuable than a Democrat in the Senate, no matter how friendly the latter might be.

"They say Trump is starting a trade war", he said.
