Polling numbers of late in North Dakota’s Senate race have been good for Congressman Kevin Cramer, but the most recent fundraising numbers favor Senator Heidi Heitkamp.

Both candidates have filed their pre-primary reports with the FEC, covering money raised between April 1 and May 23 of this year, and while Cramer has talked about catching up with the incumbent financially he’s still falling behind.

Heitkamp netted $700,195.08 in the reporting period, and has raised $9,468,809.51 so far in the election cycle. She ended the reporting period with $5,218,517.60 in cash on hand.
