Trump Tour Heads To North Dakota With Senate Seat At Stake

President Donald Trump's stepped-up campaign tour this week is taking him to North Dakota to help a Republican candidate who reluctantly entered a high-stakes Senate race and then questioned the support he has received from the White House.

Rep. Kevin Cramer made it clear he was less than happy with Trump's friendly treatment of Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp. Cramer recently called White House Chief of Staff John Kelly asking for the campaign to take a new approach.

Cramer says the hubbub was "more about the White House than me," but some Republicans believe it's time for Trump to take on Heitkamp.

Heitkamp says she's curious how Trump will portray her record, which she says has favored many issues the president cares about, like environmental and banking regulations.
