U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer has defeated a little-known opponent to win North Dakota's Republican primary for U.S. Senate. Cramer easily beat Air Force veteran Thomas O'Neill on Tuesday.

Cramer now faces a tougher campaign to unseat Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in a race seen as critical for control of the closely divided Senate. Cramer is a former state Republican Party chairman. He was first elected to the House in 2012 and has easily won re-election twice since then.

Republican state Sen. Kelly Armstrong has won North Dakota's U.S. House primary. Armstrong is vying to replace Rep. Kevin Cramer, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Heidi Heitkamp. Armstrong easily defeated ex-Marine Tiffany Abentroth and former North Dakota State football player Paul Schaffner. State Sen. Tom Campbell also appeared on the ballot despite dropping out of the race. Armstrong, an attorney from Dickinson, has strong ties to the state's oil industry. He'll face Democrat Mac Schneider, a Grand Forks attorney who had no opposition in the primary.
