BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Sen.-elect John Hoeven has named some key members of his staff.
The Republican governor who recently was elected to the U.S. Senate says Don Larson, who is currently leading the transition effort, will be his chief of staff. Don Canton will continue to be Hoeven's spokesman.
Hoeven says that to ensure a smooth transition for the governor's office, current Chief of Staff Ron Rauschenberger (RAW’-shuhn-buhr-guhr) will continue to serve in that role for Lt. Gov. Jack Dalrymple through next year's Legislature before joining the Senate staff as Hoeven's state director.
State Commerce Commissioner Shane Goettle (GET’-uhl) will serve as state director before moving to another position within Hoeven's Senate staff.
