Businessman and former state Republican Party chairman Gary Emineth confirmed yesterday that he will enter the 2018 North Dakota Senate race. Mr. Emineth will face state Sen. Tom Campbell (R-Grafton) in the Republican primary, which may end at the state endorsement convention. Most often, North Dakota candidates abide by the state delegates’ expressed preference. The Emineth move had been expected since at-large US Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-Bismarck) passed on challenging incumbent Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D) in order to instead seek re-election.
