NORTH DAKOTA (KXNET) — In an opinion article published in the Wall Street Journal Tuesday, Governor Doug Burgum outlined why he is running for president.

Burgum noted Joe Biden’s re-election campaign mentioned nothing about his economic vision of the country. That was a mistake, Burgum wrote, and something the country doesn’t need ahead of a possible recession.

Burgum added the economy must be the top priority. He says his priorities as president would be to control inflation, cut taxes, lower gas prices, reduce the cost of living, and stop buying energy from our enemies.

Burgum is expected to formally declare his candidacy for president Wednesday around 11:30 a.m. at a Fargo political event. KX will be on hand for coverage of the announcement.
