DescriptionTrailing Democrat Heidi Heitkamp by less than 1 percentage point with all precincts reporting in North Dakota's closely watched U.S. Senate race, U.S. Rep. Rick Berg refused to concede the race pending the outcome of the official vote canvassing and left the door open to a possible recount.

In complete and unofficial results, Heitkamp led her Republican opponent by 2,814 votes, just shy of 1 percentage point – 50.25 percent to 49.31 percent, a margin slim enough that Berg could ask for a recount.

Heitkamp took the stage at a Democratic-NPL rally in Bismarck to declare her likely victory in North Dakota's U.S. Senate race against Berg at 2 a.m., with one precinct still left to be counted.
