North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp said Hillary Clinton can't go away "soon enough" while speaking with local radio station KFGO. The host, Heitkamp's brother, asked when Clinton will "ride off into the sunset." Heitkamp responded simply: "Not soon enough."

Why it matters: Similar to the trend of Republican candidates distancing themselves from President Trump, Heitkamp joins a growing list of vulnerable Democrats up for re-election this year who don't want to be viewed as Clinton Democrats.
