FILE - In this March 31, 2012, file photo, Rep. Rick Berg, R-N.D., speaks before the North Dakota GOP Convention in Bismarck, N.D. Berg is running for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Kent Conrad. North Dakota’s prosperity from an energy boom as the rest of the country slowly crawls out from under the economic wreckage of four years ago is making a contest of a Senate race that Democrats had all but conceded. A former state attorney general with ties to the energy industry, Heidi Heitkamp, may be the state’s only Democrat who can prevent the party from losing retiring Sen. Kent Conrad’s seat.
