ND Gov. Candidate Nelson Chooses New Rockford Sen. Heckaman as Running Mate

By  | 

Grand Forks, N.D. (AP) Unless another Democrat enters the race before the June primary, it looks like the Left's gubernatorial ticket is set.

Candidate Rep. Marvin Nelson, D-Rolla, has chosen Sen. Joan Heckaman, D-New Rockford, as his running mate.

Sixty-nine-year-old Heckaman has been a state senator since 2007.
Before that, she was a teacher.

Three Republicans, Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, entrepeneur Doug Burgum and Rep. Rick Becker, R-Bismarck, are running for governor, as well.

None of the Republican candidates have chosen running mates yet.
