(Jamestown, ND) -- An engineering professor at the University of Jamestown is running for U.S. Senate.
Katrina Christiansen announced her candidacy Monday for the seat held by U.S. Senator John Hoeven. This is the Democratic-NPL candidate's first political campaign.
Christiansen says she "will be a strong, independent voice for all North Dakotans" if elected. She joins fellow Democrat Michael Steele and Republican State House Representative Rich Becker who are challenging for Hoeven's seat.
