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 Heitkamp’s 2000 campaign, when she lost a gubernatorial bid to Hoeven while fighting cancer.

“It was a hard-fought race,” Wilson said. “Even though people didn’t 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. “She’s a ferocious campaigner.”

For now, however, Republicans can count their chips.
