Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is continuing the local focus of her campaign ads, highlighting her hometown of Mantador, North Dakota, in her latest television ad.

“In every small town in North Dakota, I see my hometown of Mantador,” the Democrat says over sweeping shots of the rural town. “I see my dad in every road construction crew. And my mom in every school janitor. I know how hard North Dakotans work.”
