From The AP:
Republican Kevin Cramer is reconsidering his decision to skip North Dakota’s U.S. Senate race under intense pressure from his party to challenge Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp.
Cramer told KFGO-AM radio station in Fargo late Tuesday that he expects to make a decision soon.
Cramer said last month he wouldn’t make a Senate run, despite a personal appeal from President Donald Trump. He cited family considerations and his seniority in the House.
Former state Republican Party Chairman Gary Emineth dropped out of the Senate race Tuesday because he said he expected Cramer to enter the race. Emineth said he had talked several times with Cramer in the past week.
“He’s getting a lot of pressure from Washington,” said Emineth, who is a close friend of Cramer’s and ran his congressional campaign in 2012.
Cramer did not respond to messages from The Associated Press.
