"Far too often in Congress, extreme views on the right and left get all the attention. I believe that you get results by talking with and working with those on either side of the aisle. That's the North Dakota way. It's for that reason that I've been able to accomplish a great deal for our state," Heitkamp said in a statement last year announcing her reelection bid.

Cramer is vacating the state's lone House seat, which will be fought over by former state Sen. Mac Schneider (D) and state Sen. Kelly Armstrong (R).

Cramer previously won reelection in 2016 over Chase Iron Eyes (D), securing 69 percent of the vote compared to his opponent's 23 percent.
