BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Republicans are electing a new state party chairman Monday night.
Public Service Commissioner Tony Clark is the only announced candidate for the job. Clark says he'd be willing to serve through the November election.
Former chairman Gary Emineth resigned July 1. Emineth said he needed more time to look after his business interests.
The 38-year-old Clark was elected to the Public Service Commission in 2000. He's also been state labor commissioner and served in the North Dakota House.
The North Dakota Republican state committee elects the party chairman. The committee is made up of district party chairmen and state Republican officials.
