Early life and career

Godfread is from Grand Forks, North Dakota.[1] He attended Red River High School, and played for the school's basketball team.[2] He graduated in 2000. He committed to attend the University of Utah to play college basketball for the Utah Utes men's basketball team.[3] After taking a redshirt for Utah in his freshman year,[4] he decided to transfer to the University of Northern Iowa.[5][6] He played college basketball for the Northern Iowa Panthers, who qualified for the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament in 2004 and 2005.[7] Godfread graduated from Northern Iowa in 2005. After his college basketball career, Godfread played professionally in Germany for the Ehingen Urspring of ProA for one season.[1][8]

Godfread returned to the United States and enrolled at the University of North Dakota, where he graduated with a Master of Business Administration and Juris Doctor in 2011.[1] He worked for Alerus Financial and served as vice president for the Greater North Dakota Chamber.[9]

Political career

After the incumbent North Dakota Insurance Commissioner, Adam Hamm, announced he would not seek reelection in 2016, Godfread announced his candidacy to succeed him.[9] Godfread was elected state insurance commissioner, defeating Democrat Ruth Buffalo.[1] As Insurance Commissioner, Godfread supported Wayne Stenehjem's decision to join California v. Texas, opposing the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.[10] Godfread is running for reelection in 2020.[1]
