Update: North Dakota Attorney General hospitalized, described as 'reponsive'


North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem was taken to Sanford Medical Center in Bismarck this morning for what his brother has described as an inflamed ulcer.

Sources say an ambulance was called to Stenehjem’s residence shortly before 8:30 this morning.

Stenehjem’s brother, Allan Stenehjem, said paramedics gave him CPR, then took him to the emergency room at Sanford. Allan Stenehjem says Wayne is “responsive.”

Stenehjem had announced back in December he would not seek another four year term as Attorney general. He was first elected to that position in 2000, after serving in the Legislature since being elected to the North Dakota House in 1976. He was elected to the state Senate in 1980.
