The Democratic candidate for North Dakota agriculture commissioner appealed to Republican Gov. John Hoeven on Wednesday to seek a delay in the proposed sale of Dakota Growers Pasta Co.
Merle Boucher, who is also the Democratic leader in the North Dakota House, said a three-month delay would allow for more public discussion of not only the sale’s impact on wheat farmers but also about public subsidies that helped the Carrington factory get started in the early 1990s.
