North Dakota Republican John Hoeven seeks third Senate term

              FILE - North Dakota Rep. Rick Becker, R-Bismarck, speaks in Bismarck, N.D., on Nov. 9, 2015. Becker narrowly lost the party's endorsement to Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., in April 2022. After originally saying he would not run if he did not get the endorsement, the Bismarck plastic surgeon who has led a growing far-right faction of the GOP in North Dakota decided to run as an independent.
