President Donald Trump is aggressively campaigning for Republican Senate candidates around the country and belittling their Democratic rivals, with one notable exception - North Dakota Sen.

Trump's affinity for Heitkamp, who got a shout-out and a handshake at a recent White House bill signing, has frustrated top Republicans who see winning her Democratic seat as crucial to holding onto their fragile 51-to-49 majority. No one has felt it more acutely than GOP Rep. Kevin Cramer, whom Trump personally recruited to run against Heitkamp.
