The chairman of the North Dakota House Appropriations Committee appears to have lost his bid for re-election.
Rep. Jeff Delzer (R-Underwood) unofficallly came in third in the Republican Primary election in District 8. Newcomers David Andahl and Dave Nehring won the GOP endorsement in that district. Andahl and Nehring were endorsed by Governor Doug Burgum and US Senator Kevin Cramer.
Delzer served one term in the Legislature in the 1991 session, then returned to the House in 1995. He has been House Appropriations chair since 2011.
