President Trump has endorsed Congressman Kevin Cramer after his win in Tuesday night’s North Dakota Republican primary race for the U-S Senate.
Cramer easily beat Air Force veteran Thomas O’Neill, and will face incumbent Democrat Heidi Heitkamp in November.
On Twitter, Trump congratulated Cramer and said, “We need Kevin in the Senate, and I strongly endorse him. Heidi voted NO on our Tax Cuts, and always will vote no when we need her. Kevin is strong on Crime & Borders, big on Cutting Taxes!”
The race between Heitkamp and Cramer is seen as critical for control of the closely divided Senate.
