ND Gov. Hoeven to Announce Run for US Senate

Barring something catastrophic, this should be a slam dunk Republican pick up.
The Tribune has learned that North Dakota Gov. John Hoeven will announce today he is running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan.

The announcement, confirmed by multiple sources, will be made at a district convention of Bismarck Republican organizations at 6 p.m.

Hoeven, 52, is in his third term as governor, elected in 2008 with more than 70 percent of the vote.
