Cramer: Trump rally in Fargo raises more than $1 million

September 6, 2018

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Cramer says a campaign rally featuring President Donald Trump in North Dakota’s biggest city has raised more than $1 million.

Trump is coming to a Fargo hotel on Friday to help Cramer.

Cramer is challenging Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, one of the most vulnerable Democrats seeking re-election.

His campaign says the cost of the Fargo event is $1,000 per couple.

The most recent campaign filings show Heitkamp with a fundraising advantage over Cramer. Heitkamp says she raised more than $1.9 million in the second quarter for her re-election bid, and has $5.2 million cash on hand.

Cramer says he raised more than $1.5 million during the reporting period, and has more than $2.4 million in the bank.
