An engineering professor at the University of Jamestown is running for U.S. Senate in her first run for elected office.
Katrina Christiansen, of Jamestown, is seeking the Democratic-NPL nomination for the seat held by U.S. Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., saying she wants to “strengthen our democracy.”
“I will be a strong, independent voice for all North Dakotans as your next senator,” Christiansen said in a video announcement Monday. “I have been proud to call North Dakota my home, and to raise a family here — and more than anything, I want to help build a better future for them. I want my neighbors to have a senator who’ll see them, who will listen to them and value them.”
