(Fargo, ND) -- A Fargo art and antiquities dealer is the latest Democrat to enter the race for U.S. Senate.  

Michael Steele announced Tuesday that he began campaigning against Senator John Hoeven four years ago. State Party spokeswoman Laura Dronen says she is only now hearing of Steele, who hasn't reached out to party leaders.  

Steele is the second Democrat seeking the nomination for Hoeven's seat, along with University of Jamestown Engineering Professor Katrina Christiansen.

Hoeven is also facing a challenge from his own party, as current Bismarck State house representative Rick Becker is running for the Senate seat as well.
