Heidi Heitkamp: Despite 'bitter' defeat, it would have been worse to not ever run at all

Description....

Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer defeated Democratic Senate incumbent Heidi Heitkamp to win the North Dakota seat. Cramer's victory over Heitkamp effectively flips a state President Donald Trump won by a wide margin in the 2016 election. Addressing the young people who got engaged in the election, Heitkamp said, "It seems like such a bitter thing to lose a race, but the worse thing would be to not ever run at all, to not ever try."
