Democrat announces run for ND Senate Seat
Today ND State Senator Tracy Potter (D) entered the race for the U.S. Senate seat that will be vacated by the retiring Sen. Byron Dorgan. Running against the popular Republican Governor John Hoeven will be interesting even if no other candidates for the Democrats decide to enter the race.
I’ve always thought North Dakota is a peculiar state for a while now because of the ND State Legislature’s conservative leanings compared to the solidly Democratic delegation they’re sent to Congress for the last decade or two. Which makes it that much more fun to speculate on who North Dakotans will eventually send to the Senate. But I don’t think the guy they send to the Senate should be running just for the hell of it, which is the impression I get from this article.
“The opportunity to run for the U.S. Senate, for an open seat, just doesn’t come along that often,” Potter said. “I looked at the landscape, know a lot of people that were talked about and considered it, but no one was stepping forward.”
Have it good,
