ND candidate wants at least 7 debates in governor race

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Democratic candidate for governor says he'd like at least seven debates with the Republican incumbent this fall.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Democratic candidate for governor says he'd like at least seven debates with the Republican incumbent this fall.

Democratic state Sen. Ryan Taylor is running against Republican Jack Dalrymple.

It is Dalrymple's first race for governor after he served as lieutenant governor for a decade.

Taylor says when he ran for his state Senate seat in rural north-central North Dakota, he and his Republican foe had seven debates throughout the district.

At a news conference Monday, Taylor said the governor's race deserves at least seven public debates held in locations throughout the state.

Recent governor campaigns in North Dakota have featured two or three public debates between the candidates. Taylor says there should be more.
