Republican Joins Race for At-Large North Dakota Seat

Posted October 5, 2011 at 10:29pm

State Rep. Bette Grande (R-N.D.) will seek the House seat being vacated by Rep. Rick Berg (R), who is running for Senate.

Public Service Commissioner Brian Kalk (R) already declared he’s seeking the seat, and state Sen. Tony Grindberg (R) and state Rep. Al Carlson (R) reportedly continue to mull bids.

North Dakota Republicans traditionally pick their nominee at their annual convention this spring.

Democrat Pam Gulleson, a former aide to ex-Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.), is running for her party’s nod.
