Forum Area Person of the Year: Heidi HeitkampAn independent spirit, Heitkamp will be first woman US senator from North Dakota
On paper, Heidi Heitkamp might not seem like the kind of person North Dakota voters would elect to high office.

Then, she worked as a lawyer in the North Dakota Tax Department, an agency she later headed.
