Berg Raises Over $650,000

Rep. Rick Berg, R-N.D., raised over $650,000 for his Senate bid during the third quarter, according to a source close to his campaign. It's a solid haul that put his campaign over the $1 million cash on hand mark on September 30.

Berg had raised about $461,000 during the second quarter, after launching his campaign in mid-May. He had just under $550,000 when that quarter came to a close.

Berg has a primary challenger, Duane Sand, who launched his candidacy in early August. Sand hasn't released his fundraising numbers yet, but his number is expected to fall well short of Berg's mark.

Sand, who has repeatedly made unsuccessful bids for statewide office, raised $131,600 in the second quarter (back when he was considering a run for Berg's House seat).

On the Democratic side, former state Rep. Pam Gulleson was considered a strong potential candidate, but last month she decided to mount a bid for Berg's House seat instead. Former North Dakota Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp is still mulling a run for the seat.
