The race for North Dakota’s lone U.S. House seat has been overshadowed by the state’s hotly contested U.S. Senate campaign.
Part of that’s because the candidates, Republican Kelly Armstrong and Democrat Mac Schneider, have enjoyed a more amicable competition. In their debates they have agreed on a number of issues.
The candidates are familiar with each other, having served together in the state Senate. Armstrong still holds his Dickinson seat, but Schneider no longer has his Grand Forks seat. They are both attorneys. On the campaign trail they have cited their differences and agreements while serving in the Senate.
