      No. But against no one? I would put him as a solid favorite. Democrats don't have a candidate right now, at all.

      And to give credit where credit is due, Berg was the majority leader of the North Dakota House, and served in that chamber for nearly 30 years. He is not some flash in the pan tea partier. He is a seasoned politician.

      •  Berg (0+ / 0-)

        I agree, he isn't some random yutz like Chip Cravaack or Reid Ribble. Voters are generally much more aware of state-level politics in North Dakota than in the average state, so a long-serving legislative leader is going to start with some name rec. Also Berg may have run with tea party support, but he's voted with the establishment wing of the party.
