ND Governor Dalrymple raises $824K for election

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple reports he raised $824,000 last year for his election campaign.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple reports he raised $824,000 last year for his election campaign.

Dalrymple's disclosure report with North Dakota's secretary of state shows he raised most of the money last November and December.

Dalrymple has been governor since December 2010, when former Gov. John Hoeven resigned to go to the U.S. Senate.

Dalrymple was Hoeven's lieutenant governor for a decade. He's running his first campaign for governor this year.

The Republican incumbent says he had $710,000 in campaign funds in his treasury at the end of last year.

North Dakota state Senate Democratic leader Ryan Taylor is the only declared Democratic candidate for governor.

Taylor has not filed his campaign fundraising report yet. Taylor has said he expects Dalrymple will outspend him.
