"These are teenagers who evidently were drunk, according to her own statement. They were drunk," he told a local radio show. "Nothing evidently happened in it all, even by her own accusation. Again, it was supposedly an attempt or something that never went anywhere."
In a later interview, Cramer continued in this vein. "What if [there was] 36 years of a record where there's nothing like that again, but instead there's a record of a perfect gentleman, of an intellect, a stellar judge," he said. The two most recent polls of the race, conducted after these comments, both show Cramer ahead of Heitkamp by 10 points or more among likely voters.
On Thursday, Heitkamp's brother told MSNBC: "She may lose. But in the morning, when she's brushing her teeth, she needs to like the person she sees."
Heitkamp herself made similar comments to WDAY News. "If this were a political decision for me. I certainly would be deciding the other way. History will judge you but most importantly you will judge yourself. I can't get up in the morning and look at the experience I've had and say yes to Judge Kavanaugh."- Advertisement -
