By: Associated Press,

The general manager of two Grand Forks radio stations says political ads for U.S. House candidate Rick Berg aired by mistake today.

The North Dakota Democratic Party had accused Berg of violating state campaign law by airing ads on Election Day, "in clear violation of the spirit and letter of the law."

Pat McLean, the general manager of KSNR and KQHT radio stations, says Berg's campaign did not buy ads for Election Day. McLean says his stations made a mistake.

Berg, a state legislator who served as the North Dakota House's Republican majority leader for six years, faces Democratic incumbent Earl Pomeroy in the election.

Berg's campaign spokesman Tom Nelson says he wasn't aware of any ads running on Election Day.
