Rep. Kelly Armstrong announces campaign for re-election

FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - North Dakota Representative Kelly Armstrong announced he's running for re-election. He made it official in Fargo Monday.

Armstrong is coming off his first term in the seat, and found himself in the middle of one the biggest political fights in the last 20 years.

Armstrong was first elected to the House in 2018, replacing now Sen. Kevin Cramer, R, N.D. Since then, he sat on the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Reform Committee, which were two of the six committees charged with investigating President Donald Trump leading up to the Impeachment trial.

Armstrong was an opponent of the trial from the very beginning; saying the Democrats rushed an unfair process. He voted against impeaching the President, but it wasn't enough to stop the House from moving forward.

On the other side of the race is Zach Raknerud, who's running for the Democratic nomination.
