BISMARCK, N.D. — Rep. Kevin Cramer says he raised more than $1.13 million in his first quarter as a Senate candidate.
Cramer’s campaign released partial figures on Tuesday ahead of the Federal Election Commission’s April 15 deadline, highlighting a haul that came mostly after he shifted from the House race in mid-February.
Spokesman Tim Rasmussen said Cramer did transfer less than $40,000 from his House fund. The campaign reported $1.86 million cash on hand.
Cramer’s opponent, Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, last week announced she had raised $1.6 million in the first quarter. Heitkamp’s campaign Tuesday said she had $5.3 million cash on hand.
Neither campaign posted detailed reports Tuesday.
The North Dakota race is seen as critical for control of the closely divided Senate.
