I'm an Energy Voter - So Where's Heidi Heitkamp?

I recently read an article in Bismarck Tribune about Kevin Cramers campaign for Senate, and there was a quote that caught my eye. According to the paper, Antoinette Heier was a teacher for 18 years, and shes now the executive director of the Hazen Chamber of Commerce. She said the local energy economy is the biggest issue for her in the Senate race, and I agree. North Dakota relies on our energy dominance for jobs and economic success, and I trust Kevin Cramer to put focus on growing our energy sector which is being threatened by imaginary environmental concerns.

Heier said Cramers record on energy led her to support his Senate bid, and I would have to say the same. Heier pointed out that Heidi Heitkamp has "different priorities," but I want a Senator who prioritizes jobs for North Dakota.
