Bismarck – A new poll shows the race for North Dakota’s U.S. Senate seat is a statistical tie.
The AARP says they polled 806 North Dakota voters age 50 and over, and of those polled, 46-percent say they would vote for Republican Kevin Kramer, while 43-percent say they would cast their ballot for incumbent Democrat Heidi Heitkamp, which is a dead heat when you consider the margin of error.
“I think that it shows that 50-plus voters are looking at the candidates intently and making up thier mind about who their going to vote for. And so , I expect if you look at most demographics the numbers are going to be very similar the part that differentiates our poll is we make up the largest voting block of North Dakotans who are going to cast their ballot in November” said AARP State Director Josh Askvig.
The Poll also showed Republican Kelly Armstrong leading Democrat Mac Schneider in the U.S. House race by a 49-to-30-percent margin
Those two will debate tomorrow night starting at 7pm on Prairie Public.
