North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says he's seeking re-election.
Goehring was appointed to the position in 2009 when then Ag Commissioner Roger Johnson resigned to become president of the National Farmers Union.
Goehring then won election in 2010 and re-election in 2014.
In a release announcing his upcoming run, Goehring pointed to the Emergency Hay Transportation program, the hay lottery, the emergency livestock water program as essential programs developed by the Ag Department during his tenure. Especially during the 2017 summer drought.
He is a third generation farmer. He and his son operate a 2,000 acre, no-till farm near Menoken. There, they raise corn, soybeans, spring wheat, winter wheat, sunflowers and barley.
The North Dakota Democratic-NPL party have not yet announced any candidates for this race.
