Elected U.S. Senator

Kevin Cramer
Republican

The 2018 United States Senate election in North Dakota took place on November 6, 2018, to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the State of North Dakota, concurrently with other elections to the U.S. Senate, as well as other federal, state and local elections in North Dakota.

Incumbent Democratic-NPL Senator Heidi Heitkamp ran for reelection to a second term.[1] The candidate filing deadline was April 9, 2018, and the primary election was held on June 12, 2018.[2] U.S. Representative Kevin Cramer easily won the Republican primary to challenge Heitkamp, who ran unopposed in the Democratic primary.

On November 6, 2018, Cramer defeated Heitkamp in the general election, becoming the first Republican to hold this seat since 1960.[3] This also marked the first time since 1916 in which North Dakota directly elected Republicans to both of its seats in the United States Senate. As a result, starting in 2019, North Dakota had no Democrats in there congressional delegation for the first time since 1959.

Background

Many observers cited Heitkamp as a vulnerable incumbent Democrat in 2018, as she balanced cooperation with her Democratic colleagues in the U.S. Senate with pleasing her constituents in deeply Republican North Dakota; President Donald Trump won in North Dakota by about 36 points.[4] The race was expected to be extremely competitive and some projected it would be the most expensive race in North Dakota history.[5]

Democratic-NPL primary

The Democratic-NPL Party held their state convention March 16 and 17, during which delegates voted to endorse Heitkamp for re-election. Although general election ballot access is actually controlled by a primary election, challenger Dustin Peyer did not challenge Heitkamp in the June 2018 primary.[6]
