Trump comes to Fargo to raise money for Cramer’s campaign
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — President Donald Trump is making his second visit to North Dakota’s biggest city within 10 weeks to campaign for U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Cramer, this time to help Cramer build up his finances.
Trump is scheduled to appear at a private fundraiser Friday at a Fargo hotel where. Cramer’s campaign says couples are paying $1,000 to get in and the event has raised more than $1 million.
Cramer is challenging Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, one of the most vulnerable Democrats seeking re-election. Heitkamp narrowly defeated Rick Berg in 2012, but won Cass County — including Fargo — by about 10,000 votes.
The most recent campaign filings show Heitkamp with a fundraising advantage. She has $5.2 million cash on hand, compared to $2.4 million for Cramer.
