North Dakota's lone US House member, Rep.Kevin Cramer (R-ND), has now made it “official” – he’s a candidate for the US Senate seat, now held by Democrat Heidi Heitkamp.
Cramer kicked off his campaign with a Friday night rally in Bismarck. In his stump speech, Cramer said the political balance of the Senate, and as he put it – “the soul of our nation,” are at stake.
"We have a razor thin 51-49 majority in the Senate," Cramer told supporters. "One vote could determine whether President Trump or Chuck Schumer chooses the next Supreme Court justice."
