FARGO, N.D.—It'll be the most expensive political race the state of North Dakota has ever seen: the U.S. Senate race between Heidi Heitkamp and Kevin Cramer. The candidates alone say they'll each spend about $10 million on advertising. Heitkamp is seeking her second term. Cramer just jumped into the race in February, after some encouragement from the White House and oil country. WDAY's Dana Mogck spoke one-on-one with both candidates. We start with Congressman Cramer.
Sixty days. That's how long Doug Burgum has been in office, as the 33rd governor of North Dakota. When Burgum took over Dec. 15, he inherited a $1 billion budget deficit; a pipeline better known for its protests than oil; an opioid crisis killing the state's youth; and, about a month into his term, a law enforcement officer gunned down on duty. "(I) learned a long time ago, if you don't care who gets the credit, you'll get a lot done," Burgum said. He is finding out there is a big difference between being in politics and being a politician.
