Senator-Elect Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND)

Heidi Heitkamp has just won the North Dakota Senate race; the unofficial margin was under one percentage point, but her opponent, U.S. Rep Rick Berg, conceded on November 7. Heitkamp, a former state attorney general who, though a Democrat describes herself as "an independent voice," is the first woman senator from her state.
