Cash keeps flowing in North Dakota’s US House race

BISMARCK – Democratic incumbent Earl Pomeroy and Republican rival Rick Berg are hustling for campaign cash as their tight race for North Dakota’s U.S. House seat nears the finish.

Since Oct. 1, Pomeroy has reported raising almost $130,000. He’s spent more than $2.8 million on his re-election. Pomeroy has almost $570,000 left in the bank and no debts.

Berg’s disclosure reports show he’s raised almost $156,000 since Oct. 1. He has almost $580,000 in campaign cash, and about $126,000 in debts. Berg has spent $1.2 million on his House race.

Both Pomeroy and Berg are filing new campaign finance reports almost daily. Federal law now requires them to disclose large donations within two days. Pomeroy has raised more than $58,000 in the last week, and Berg has collected just over $33,000.
