In 2014 long-time Democratic Senator Tom Harkin retired from his seat. Republican State Senator Joni Ernst and US Representative Bruce Braley fought a contentious battle for the seat. Ernst ultimately won. Can you change history?
In 2000 Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan ran for the US Senate against incumbent Republican John Ashcroft. Carnahan died in a tragic plane crash three weeks before election day and remarkably unseated Ashcroft in November. Can you change history?
Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp narrowly won her Senate race against freshman US Representative Rick Berg in 2012, even as Romney won the state by double digits on the Presidential level.
Heitkamp is in hot water now. With polarization increasing in the Trump-era, Heitkamp is trailing US Representative Kevin Cramer in polling. Can Heitkamp push a unique message to appeal to the voters one more time? or will Cramer tie himself to Trump to win in a normally Republican state?
