BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Republican U.S. House candidate Kevin Cramer has almost caught up to Democratic rival Pam Gulleson in their campaign fundraising race.

Cramer's campaign finance disclosure report shows he raised $276,000 in the last month. Since Cramer started his campaign last year, he's collected almost $600,000 in donations.

Gulleson's Federal Election Commission report shows she raised about $123,000 during the last month. Her campaign has raised about $630,000 since it began.

Gulleson has almost $380,000 in her campaign treasury now, while Cramer has about $273,000.

Cramer defeated Brian Kalk last month in the North Dakota Republican primary for the party's nomination to run for the U.S. House.

Cramer says he's been focusing since then on raising money to lessen Gulleson's fundraising advantage. Gulleson did not have a Democratic primary challenger.
