Cramer wins North Dakota GOP nod to seek Senate

Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., claimed his party’s endorsement for the U.S. Senate race on Saturday in front of a packed ballroom at Grand Forks’ Alerus Center, where delegates at the GOP state convention voted for him unanimously.

In an address moments before the vote, Cramer laid out the high-stakes race, which could decide control of the chamber, touting his work in the House of Representatives and lamenting that Senate Democrats have been able “to obstruct and block our progress.”
