A former member of the North Dakota state Legislature and a potential future U.S. Senate candidate has joined the board of directors of the Red River Valley Research Corridor.
Pam Gulleson represented the state’s 26th district as a Democratic representative in the state House from 1992 to 2008.
Wednesday, a group of North Dakota democrats made a public pitch to Gulleson to encourage her to enter the 2012 U.S. Senate race, to contest the seat that will be vacated when Democratic Senator Kent Conrad’s term expires. Conrad has announced his intention not to run for re-election.
Gulleson previously served as state director and chief of staff of former Democratic U.S. Sen. Byron Dorgan. She now is an advisor to the president for the North Dakota Farmers Union.
The Red River Valley Research Corridor is a non-profit corporation focused on promoting science, technology, engineering and training initiatives and helping to create new economic opportunities throughout the region.
Gulleson grew up on a dairy farm near Oakes, N.D., and is involved in a family farming operation with her husband at her home near Rutland, N.D.
