BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp continues to hold a fundraising advantage over Rep. Kevin Cramer, her Republican challenger.

Heitkamp's campaign released partial figures this week ahead of the Federal Election Commission's Sunday deadline. Heitkamp says she raised more than $1.9 million in the second quarter for her re-election bid, and has $5.2 million cash on hand.

Cramer's campaign says he raised more than $1.5 million during the reporting period, and has more than $2.4 million in the bank.

The North Dakota race is seen as critical for control of the closely divided Senate.
