Rep. Kelly Armstrong to Run for Governor of North Dakota

Kelly Armstrong, the at-large representative for North Dakota, said Tuesday that he will run for governor this year. Armstrong will look to succeed fellow Republican Doug Burgum, who announced his retirement the previous day.

Armstrong is in his third term in the U.S. House. He won by 25% over an independent candidate in 2022. Democratic nominee Mark Haugen withdrew before the election. The seat is safely Republican in 2024.

The governorship is also expected to remain under GOP control; the state last elected a Democrat to that position in 1988. 

41 current House members - 23 Democrats and 18 Republicans - are not seeking reelection this year. That number includes retirements, those running for another office, and one pending resignation.
