We wrap up the week with our final Forum Communications exclusive poll on the June primary election. The race for U.S. House is very similar to the senate race. Two republican men are vying to become the candidate to run against the democratic female opponent.

In March, democrats endorsed Pam Gulleson to be their nominee for the sole North Dakota U.S. House seat. The seat is occupied by Rick Berg, a republican and candidate for Senate, who beat longtime democratic congressman earl Pomeroy in 2010.

The state's Republican party endorsed Brian Kalk as its official candidate in April. He'll face Tea Party endorsed candidate Kevin Cramer in June. Cramer also ran in 2010 losing the nomination to Berg.

Of the 500 likely primary voters polled by Essman research of Iowa, 38% plan to vote for Cramer, and 25% for Kalk. A whopping 37% said they are undecided.

If the house race was held right now, Kalk would defeat Gulleson 48% to 31%, and Gulleson would lose in a landslide to Cramer 61% to 23%. Find complete analysis to the poll in the latest Forum and Herald.

Kalk and Cramer are both currently members of the Public Service Commission. Gulleson was the chief of staff to former Senator Byron Dorgan.
