Announcements made for house majority leader

The North Dakota state legislature will now be looking for some new leadership since its House majority leader was not re-elected.

In the District 41 state representative race, Al Carlson(R) lost his bid for re-election, receiving 22 percent of the vote.

Carlson had been a member of the house since 1993 and the majority leader since 2009, but the Senate majority leader will be around for another term.

Senator Rich Wardner(R) was re-elected in District 37, beating democrat Travis Brazelton, easily.

Wardner thinks there are a couple people who do have intentions of taking Carlson’s place.

“There is one that has announced today. His name is Mike Nathe; he is a representative from Bismarck, and he is a good man,” said Wardner.

Along with Mike Nathe, of District 30 in Bismarck,  Dan Ruby of District 38 in Minot-announced his interest in being house majority leader
