Up in North Dakota, the Democrats’ candidate for Senate does her part to help the president:

In an interview, [Heidi Heitkamp, a former state attorney general] made it clear she intends to keep her distance from Obama.

“I think he’s failed in the one test America had for him, which was to unite the country,” she told The Associated Press. “I think he needed to be more hands-on. … I don’t think he’s done enough to think broadly and come up with solutions that would engage both sides in a reasonable dialogue.”

Obama 2012: Because even his own party’s candidates say he’s failed in the one test America had for him.

The Republican candidate in Heitkamp’s race is Rep. Rick Berg.
