Heitkamp Is A NO On Kavanaugh
Senator Heidi Heitkamp announced today she is a NO vote on the Kavanaugh Supreme Court Justice Seat.
According to The Hill, The Senator made the announcement today on a Fargo radio station and her announcement comes less than a day after the FBI concluded its investigation into the sexual allegations against Kavanaugh. Some Democrats are speaking out the investigation ordered by President Trump did not go far enough into the allegations of Kavanaugh because the FBI hands were essentially tied due to the directions from the president. In other words, it was not a thorough investigation because of the limitations and scope directed by the president.
Heitkamp said she was moved by Dr. Ford's testimony and she points to her time as Attorney General for North Dakota when she implemented the Violence Against Women Act.
Does it matter? Most likely not as Republicans don't need Heitkamp to ultimately get Kavanaugh confirmed.
