(WDAY TV) -- We are in a full fledged back-and-forth advertising battle in the race for the North Dakota US Senate seat.

Today, Senator hopeful Heidi Heitkamp called out what she says is a false add. The add accuses Heitkamp, when she was attorney general, of hiring an out of state trial lawyer, saying that firm got millions and is now Heitkamp's largest backer in her campaign.

Heidi Heitkamp - (D) US Senate Candidate: "It's absolutely not true and there's nothing in the official record that would ever substantiate or ever support, ever support that charge and they know it."

Heitkamp called the add smear politics and says it's aimed to distract viewers from flaws in Rick Berg's run for the US Senate.
