BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Republican U.S. House candidate Rick Berg

says his campaign manager has quit.

Berg says Paul Sorenson on Monday admitted to using parts of an

e-mail list he got when he served as the party's executive

director.

The list is meant for endorsed Republican candidates. Berg and

three other men are competing for the party's endorsement to run

for the House this fall.

GOP state Chairman Gary Emineth has said Berg improperly used

the e-mail list to drum up support.

Sorenson told The Associated Press he "was not completely

upfront with Berg" about the e-mail list.

Berg and Kevin Cramer are the top competitors for the GOP

endorsement. Cramer says Sorenson did the right thing by quitting.
