BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - There’s one less person in the Democratic-NPL party.
Mark Haugen, the Democratic nominee for the House of Representatives in 2022, has switched to the Republican party.
Haugen, a pro-life candidate, dropped out of the House race against incumbent Kelly Armstrong after pro-choice Independent Cara Mund announced her candidacy last summer.
He said he wants to serve his civic duty as a regular citizen and doesn’t have plans to run for office.
Before his run for the House, Haugen ran unsuccessfully for the Legislature three times and state treasurer once.
