Republicans Seek Straight Flush in North Dakota

Looking ahead to 2016, Democrats will attempt to defeat Hoeven, the three-term governor who demolished his Democratic opponent in 2010.

Paul Wilson, of Wilson Grand Communications, has worked for both Hoeven and Cramer. He recalled Heitkamps 2000 campaign, when she lost a gubernatorial bid to Hoeven while fighting cancer.

It was a hard-fought race, Wilson said. Even though people didnt elect her, they respect her.

In the 2012 Senate race, Heitkamp narrowly beat Berg. Republicans view her as a tough competitor.

She will be a difficult challenge, Wilson said. Shes a ferocious campaigner.

For now, however, Republicans can count their chips.
