FARGO (AP) - North Dakota Democrats are turning to a familiar political name in an attempt to win the state's lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Fargo banker George B. Sinner is the son of former governor George A. Sinner. Delegates at the state convention in Fargo endorsed Sinner to challenge Republican Kevin Cramer.
The 50-year-old Sinner says Cramer is not in touch with North Dakota values and showed that when he decided to keep his paycheck after voting for the government shutdown in 2013.
The group on Saturday also endorsed former state legislator April Fairfield for secretary of state and software consultant Todd Reisenauer for a six-year term on the PSC.
The 44-year-old Fairfield served 10 years in the Legislature. This is the first political campaign for the 38-year-old Reisenauer.
