BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Democratic candidate for North Dakota’s lone U.S. House seat said his loss to Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer by 30,000 votes shows that the outcome was “meant to be.”
George Sinner says he believed the race would be closer, but his campaign was outspent as the election drew near and Cramer rode the Republican wave to an easy victory.
Sinner says Cramer was wise to promote President Barack Obama’s unpopularity in the state. Sinner says he would have done the same thing.
Sinner says his campaign tried to call Cramer and congratulate him, but could not get through.
Cramer also did not return phone messages left by The Associated Press.
