North Dakota: DSCC Invests More Ad Time in Heidi Heitkamp
Posted at 12:35 p.m. on June 19, 2012
National Democrats upped the ante in the North Dakota Senate race with a second ad buy to boost their nominee, former state Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp.
This week, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee placed another $86,000 statewide ad buy through their independent expenditure arm. The 30-second spot, which runs from today to July 2, blasts Heitkamp’s opponent, freshman Rep. Rick Berg (R-N.D.).
The buy marks the DSCC’s second IE ad of the cycle in North Dakota, following an earlier buy. It’s a sign the committee views the race as competitive and worth their early investment.
A recent Mason-Dixon Polling and Research survey of the North Dakota Senate race showed Heitkamp and Berg in a virtual tie.
Roll Call rates this race as Leans Republican.
