Dunn County (WDAY TV) -- Residents of Dunn County in Western North Dakota, want a grand jury to decide if campaign contributions accepted by Governor Jack Dalrymple from the oil industry may be considered bribery. More than 170 residents signed a petition.

More than $80-thousand dollars in campaign contributions were accepted,

the same time Dalrymple and other Industrial Commission members were considering a controversial case that involved a large area designated for oil development.

The development was OK'd. Dalrymple's campaign denies the connection.

The petition effort has ties to the campaigns of two Dalrymple challengers in next week's election.
