BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A conservative advocacy group funded by the billionaire Koch brothers has announced a digital advertising campaign for a North Dakota Democrat, whose seat is seen as vulnerable in the midterm election.

The group Americans for Prosperity announced Friday that it is running a digital advertisement for U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp. The ad thanks Heitkamp for co-sponsoring a bill that rolls back regulations placed on banks after the 2008 financial crisis.

Heitkamp has made her ability to cross the aisle a selling point in her re-election bid, where she’ll likely face Republican U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer. Her seat is considered highly vulnerable in a state Trump carried by almost 36 percentage points in 2016.

Americans for Prosperity president Tim Phillips says his group doesn’t agree with Heitkamp on everything, but commends her vote to ease banking restrictions.
