State Rep. Rich Becker (R), who competed in the 2016 state Republican Convention for the Governor’s nomination, said yesterday that he will not become a US Senate candidate. Mr. Becker had been openly considering running for the party nomination to oppose first-term North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D). At-large US Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-Bismarck) still maintains he is contemplating a Senate bid, but the only person to actually come forward to declare his candidacy is state Sen. Tom Campbell (R-Grafton).
