  • President Heads to ND for MAGA Rally

She said the duty of picking a justice is "one of the most important roles of a us senator, and I don't take this job lightly".

"[Crowley] actually had a lot of money left over and he was going to take Nancy Pelosi's place" as Democratic leader, Trump said.

Back home in North Dakota, Heitkamp's party focused on a self-described "grassroots" effort, according to party Communications Director Alex Rich, to share its "North Dakota First" message.

President Donald Trump is offering a hearty endorsement to congressman Kevin Cramer, the man he says will be "the next United States senator from the great state of North Dakota".

Heitkamp's campaign confirmed to ABC News that the senator will not be in the state during President Trump's rally because the U.S. Senate is now in session.

President Donald Trump waves to supporters as he leaves the stage after speaking during a rally at an arena in Duluth, Minn., June 20, 2018.

President Donald Trump is trumpeting the primary loss of Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley of NY to a political newcomer.

Trump, with his arms spread wide for what appeared a hugging embrace, quickly readjusted his arms right before embracing Cramer.

Trump's rally in North Dakota's largest city-like rallies he's held in other cities-was part rock concert, part theater, part political rally and mostly about Trump.

Trump's popularity in the North Dakota is unquestionably strong. "A vote for any Democrat is a vote for Schumer, Pelosi and Maxine - Maxine, she's a beauty". Heidi Heitkamp, although she is a moderate who strays at times from Democratic positions. "Heidi will vote no to any pick we make".

"And on these very important North Dakota values, you'll never have to wonder where I'll be", he said. In a statement, Heitkamp said she and Trump "had a solid discussion about the Supreme Court vacancy", adding that she "stressed the importance of nominating someone to the Supreme Court who is pragmatic, fair, compassionate, committed to justice, and above politics - traits that match Justice Kennedy and which I know are important to North Dakotans".

The rally marks the third time in the last week Trump has campaigned for Republican candidates. "Please keep Maxine ... on the air as the mouthpiece of your party".

Heitkamp says she's curious how Trump will portray her record, which she says has favored many issues the president cares about, like environmental and banking regulations.

Cramer told The Associated Press that the hubbub was "more about the White House than me", but some Republicans believe it's time for Trump, who's enormously popular in North Dakota, to take on Heitkamp.

Can you imagine if I said the things she said?
