2014 North Dakota elections

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A general election was held in the U.S. state of North Dakota on November 4, 2014. Five of North Dakota's executive officers were up for election as well as the state's at-large seat in the United States House of Representatives. Primary elections were held on June 10, 2014.[1]

Attorney General

Incumbent Republican Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, who has served in the office since January 1, 2001, was re-elected to a fifth term.[2]

Kiara Kraus-Parr, an attorney and adjunct law professor at the University of North Dakota, ran for the seat on behalf of the Democrats.[3]

Commissioner of Agriculture

Incumbent Republican Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring, who has served in the office since April 6, 2009, was re-elected to a second term.[2]

Goehring was the only Republican or Democrat to face a contested nomination for any statewide position. After he made insensitive comments to female staffers, farmer and nurse Judy Estenson challenged him for the Republican nomination.[8][9] The North Dakota Farm Bureau, which Goehring was a former Vice President of, opposed his bid for re-election,[10] and he announced that if did not win the Republican endorsement, he would run in the primary in June, though he ruled out running as an Independent in the general election.[11][12] At the Republican convention on April 6, 2014,[13] Goehring defeated Estenson by 624 votes to 245.[14]

Rancher, former State Senator and 2012 Gubernatorial nominee Ryan Taylor ran against Goehring for the Democrats.[15][16]

Goehring raised more money but Taylor, who ran on a platform of tighter regulation of the state's oil industry, is a strong campaigner and kept the race tight.[17]
