BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota U.S. Rep. Rick Berg plans to begin a campaign for the U.S. Senate next week.

Two Republican officials with knowledge of the GOP congressman's plans confirmed to The Associated Press on Friday that Berg will announce the Senate run.

The sources said they had firsthand knowledge of Berg's plans but were not authorized to discuss them.

A Berg spokeswoman has said Berg will release a video Monday night disclosing his decision. The announcement will be followed by a three-day tour of 10 North Dakota cities.

So far Republican Public Service Commissioner Brian Kalk is the only declared candidate for the U.S. Senate.

Kalk and Berg will be seeking the seat held by Democrat Kent Conrad, who says he's not running for re-election next year.
