Washington Post claims Heitkamp was the best
After ranking Gov. Rick Perry of Texas as the worst candidate in 2012, The Washington Post turned around and proclaimed Heidi Heitkamp as the best.
The Post pointed out that Mitt Romney garnered 58 percent of the 323,000 votes in North Dakota while Barack Obama received only 39 percent. The Post was impressed with Heitkamp's ability to overcome this gap of 19 percent and make it to a bare 50 percent plus.
