Hoeven Statement on Governor Jack Dalrymple's Announcement That He Will Not Run for Another Term

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement in response to Governor Jack and First Lady Betsy Dalrymple’s announcement that they will not run for another term as governor:

“Governor Jack Dalrymple, a friend and colleague for many years, has spent a large share of his life serving the people of North Dakota with distinction in one capacity or another. Having served 16 years in the legislature, 10 years as my partner and lieutenant governor and more than five years as governor himself, Jack has cumulatively served the people of North Dakota for more than 30 years. He has earned the appreciation and respect of all North Dakotans.

“Mikey and I, along with all North Dakotans, are grateful for Jack and Betsy’s service and understand their desire to spend more time with their growing family. We thank them for their good stewardship of our state and wish them the very best for whatever the next chapter of life holds for them.”
