In North Dakota, GOP representative Kevin Cramer has begun airing his latest ad in his race to challenge incumbent Democratic senator Heidi Heitkamp.

The video advertisement, which was provided exclusively to National Review this weekend, hits Heitkamp for her three votes in the Senate against requiring that state and local law enforcement cooperate with federal agents to enforce federal immigration law.

“I voted against funding sanctuary cities because federal tax dollars shouldn’t go to cities that hide illegal immigrants, especially those who commit violent crimes,” Cramer says in the ad. “It’s hard to understand why Heidi Heitkamp, who is a former attorney general, voted to fund sanctuary cities that ignore the rule of law and put our citizens and law-enforcement officers at risk.”

The most recent poll of the race, from mid June, gave Cramer a four-point edge over Heitkamp, and Roll Call shifted the race’s rating this summer from “toss-up” to “tilts Republican.”
