The DSCC is up with its first ad of the cycle in North Dakota attacking Republican Senate contender Rep. Rick Berg for voting "to essentially end Medicare" and "gut support for farmers" by voting for the Rep. Paul Ryan's budgets. The ad calls this the "Washington way." It then boosts Democratic nominee Heidi Heitkamp:
That’s not the way we do things in North Dakota. Heidi Heitkamp knows. She’ll protect Medicare, and defend our farm and energy jobs. For Heidi, it’s always the North Dakota way.
The ad buy is $76,000, according to National Journal.
