North Dakota Governor Burgum endorses Julie Fedorchak for state's sole congressional seat

(Fargo, ND) -- North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum announced Friday that he is endorsing fellow republican Julie Fedorchak for Congress. 

“I’m excited to announce my complete support and full endorsement for Julie Fedorchak to represent North Dakota in Congress. Julie and I have worked together to strengthen North Dakota’s economy and unleash American energy. President Trump needs more fighters like Julie in Congress — an ally who will reject politics as usual and focus on getting real results,” said Burgum.

“Governor Burgum and I are aligned in our focus on government that is responsive to the needs of people and strengthens the engines that drive our economy like agriculture and energy. This is the same approach I will bring to Washington, and I appreciate the Governor’s support for my campaign,” Fedorchak said.

Fedorchak is currently serving as a commissioner on the state Public Service Commission. 

She is running against fellow republicans Rick Becker, Tom Campbell, and Alex Balazs. 

The DFL candidate is Trygve Hammer.
