BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Republicans favor Brian Kalk as their candidate for the U.S. House, but he's behind GOP primary challenger Kevin Cramer in raising money.

And Democratic House candidate Pam Gulleson has the strongest campaign treasury of anyone in the race.

New Federal Election Commission reports show Cramer has almost $200,000 in his campaign fund. He's raised $254,000 so far.

Kalk's report shows he has $65,000 in his campaign bank, and he's raised $144,000 for his bid for Congress.

North Dakota Republicans endorsed Kalk during their state convention this month. Cramer didn't compete for the endorsement because he's running in the June primary.

The winner of the Kalk-Cramer matchup will oppose Gulleson in the fall campaign.

Gulleson's report shows she's raised $404,000 so far. She has $313,000 in the bank.
