GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Former Republican presidential candidate John McCain is coming to North Dakota, where he might stump for U.S. Senate candidate Rick Berg.

The Arizona senator is scheduled to tour the University of North Dakota's unmanned aircraft programs on Thursday with Berg and Sen. John Hoeven. Berg spokesman Chris Van Guilder tells the Grand Forks Herald that he is working on details of a possible political event with McCain while he is in town.

Berg is North Dakota's representative in the U.S. House. He is running against Democrat Heidi Heitkamp for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Kent Conrad.

Former President Bill Clinton campaigned for Heitkamp in Fargo on Monday.
