Hundreds of supporters across the state had the opportunity to hear from North Dakota's newly elect Senator.
Heidi Heitkamp made stops across the state of North Dakota as part of her "thank you" tour.
Tonight we caught up with her as she thanked supporters in Bismarck.
Heidi Heitkamp walks into the Labor Temple in Bismarck --- shocked at the number of supporters who showed up to see the next North Dakota Senator.
"You can talk about the ads all you want, but in the end it's the efforts of North Dakotans like this, like you see in this room, they're the reason why I'm the next senator from North Dakota," Heidi Heitkamp said.
Those supporters have been working by Heidi's side for months, helping her become North Dakota's first female Senator.
"My wife has been on the phone, she's been knocking on the doors and whatever we can do, I can't do much of the walking so I stuffed the envelopes and she did the walking and the talking," Nick Schirado - Bismarck said.
One of the areas where Heidi gained a lot of support was on the Reservations.
"Personally I think between the women and the Native Americans, we are the ones that pushed her over the top," Eunice Toman said.
"The reality is, I'm well known, I spent 14 years as an elected official I spent lots of time working with memorandums, appearing before tribal councils," Heitkamp said.
Heitkamp will now join republican John Hoeven in the Senate but she says they'll both serve North Dakota.
"I think as two senators who now probably share a common goal to make this work, I look forward to working with Senator Hoeven," Heitkamp said.
Which is a trust Heitkamp has with these supporters.
"Heidi is just good people, Heidi will represent people who didn't even vote for her."
Earlier today Heitkamp made stops in both Fargo and Grand Forks.
