GOP Senate candidate compares voting against Trump to cheating on spouse

Greg Nash

Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) on Wednesday likened voting against President Trump’s agenda to cheating on one’s significant other.

Cramer, who is running against Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) in this year’s midterm election, attacked the Democratic senator during a radio appearance, CNN reported.

“Here’s the good news about Donald Trump: Most of the time, he’s for North Dakota, and that’s my point where I’ve heard [Heitkamp] say, ‘Gee, I voted with him 55 percent of the time,’ ” Cramer told conservative host Scott Hennen.

{mosads}”Can you imagine going home and telling your wife, ‘I’ve been faithful to you 55 percent of the time?’ Are you kidding me? Being wrong half the time is not a good answer,” he continued.

Cramer is expected to face a GOP primary challenge in his effort to unseat Heitkamp.

The Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan election analysis, rates the North Dakota Senate race as a toss-up.

Trump won the state by nearly 36 percentage points in 2016.
