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.
