The Republican served as lieutenant governor in the Hoeven Administration for more than a decade before assuming the state`s top spot when then-Gov. John Hoeven left office early to assume his seat in the U.S. Senate. No other Republicans have announced.
Democratic Senate Minority Leader Ryan Taylor is expected to announce whether he`ll run after this month`s Special Session.
"When I look at what is going on around our country, how other states continue to struggle, job losses and budget deficits, I am extremely proud of what we are accomplishing right here in North Dakota," said Gov. Jack Dalrymple.
Dalrymple is criss-crossing the state today, making the announcement. He`ll be in Minot this afternoon, and then Bismarck.
