Cramer, R-N.D., said the event will be Friday evening at the South 40, a barn-turned-events center at the residence of former North Dakota Republican Party chairman Gary Emineth.

Boehner, R-Ohio, is making the stop during a motorcoach tour across several states, Cramer said.

Cramer said several hundred invitations have been sent.

“First of all, he’s a great draw for fundraising, and we hope to raise a lot of money while he’s here. And secondly, I consider him a friend,” he said.

Cramer leads his Democratic opponent, state Sen. George Sinner of Fargo, in fundraising, with net contributions of about $961,000 to Sinner’s $384,000 in the 2014 election cycle, according to Federal Election Commission figures.

Cramer ended the last quarter with about $653,000 in cash on hand, compared with roughly $274,000 for Sinner. However, Sinner outraised Cramer in the quarter, bringing in nearly $350,000 to Cramer’s $236,000 from April 1 to June 30.
