Berg wins GOP nod to face Pomeroy

North Dakota state Rep. Rick Berg will face Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.) in November, after defeating state Public Service Commission Kevin Cramer for the GOP nod.

From the Bismarck Tribune:

The Republican Convention has given its endorsement to Fargo Rep. Rick Berg for the U.S. House race.

Berg will face Rep. Earl Pomeroy, D-N.D., in the general election.

“We are unified in our belief that our representative in Congress is not representing us and must be changed,” said Berg on Saturday. “It’s time to give North Dakota’s representational seat back to the people.”

Berg beat out the other likely front runner, Public Service Commission Chairman Kevin Cramer, as well as candidates J.D. Donaghe of Kenmare and DuWayne Hendrickson of Minot.

Berg beat Cramer by 972 to 442 votes.
