BISMARCK (AP) - North Dakota's candidates for the U.S. Senate, U.S. House and governor are scheduled to debate each other Wednesday.
The North Dakota Broadcasters Association is hosting the three debates at a Bismarck hotel.
The Senate debate is first. Republican Rick Berg and Democrat Heidi Heitkamp are competing to replace longtime incumbent Democrat Kent Conrad. Conrad is leaving after 26 years in the Senate.
Republican Kevin Cramer and Democrat Pam Gulleson are running against each other to take Berg's place in the U.S. House. Berg was first elected to the House almost two years ago.
On Wednesday afternoon, incumbent Republican Gov. Jack Dalrymple will be debating Democratic challenger Ryan Taylor. Dalrymple is a former lieutenant governor, and Taylor is the Democratic leader in the North Dakota state Senate.
