WASHINGTON, DC – Senate Leadership Fund today released the following statement in response to Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s efforts to cover up her controversial comments in support Russian efforts in the Syrian civil war.
“What is disgusting is that Heidi Heitkamp is suddenly trying to run away from her record of ‘trusting the Russians to come to the table’ to stop the Syrians from using chemical weapons. She said it. Russians failed. There was another attack. Children died. It is horrible. And that is something Senator Heitkamp has to live with,” said Senate Leadership Fund Spokesman Chris Pack.
Earlier today, Senate Leadership Fund released a digital ad highlighting Heitkamp’s support of Russia’s strategy in dealing with the ongoing Syrian conflict. The ad can be viewed below.
