Heitkamp won’t run for governor of ND
September 11, 2015
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, announced this week that she will not run for governor in 2016.
She said in an interview on her brother Joel Heitkamp's radio show that her Senate duties demand her full time.
Heitkamp ran for governor in 2000, but lost against Republican John Hoeven, now also a senator and also serving on the Senate Agriculture Committee.
Heitkamp's term, her first, runs through 2018.
