Heidi Heitkamp Is Probably Running for Governor in 2020

MINOT, N.D. — Here’s a bold prediction: Former U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is probably going to run for governor.

I don’t think she wants to be president of the University of North Dakota. Her name has been thrown around a bit for that job, and while she’s played coy when asked if she’d take the gig, that’s probably more ego than intent.

I think she has her eyes set on a higher prize than university president.

She has the money. According to her most recent filing with the FEC she has over $6 million in cash still sitting in her Senate campaign. There are no restrictions on Heitkamp donating all of that cash to her own gubernatorial campaign.

3. I don't think she can use federal campaign money for a state race.

4. Ballotpedia says otherwise:

https://ballotpedia.org/Transfers_of_federal_funds_to_state_campaign_accounts

Federal campaign finance law prohibits candidates for federal office from transferring funds from state campaign accounts to federal accounts. However, federal law does not prohibit transfers from federal campaign accounts to state accounts. Laws governing such transfers vary from state to state.
