Democratic Governor Candidate Shelley Lenz has chosen former State Rep. Ben Vig as her running mate.
Vig is from Sharon. He served in the North Dakota House in the 2007 and 2009 sessions.
"When I met Ben, I knew he was the perfect one," Lenz said. "He's a young family farmer, transitioning into the future."
Lenz said she was also impressed with his "deep knowledge" of the state.
"It's unmatched by even some of our fellows in the more golden years," Lenz said.
Vig said he was happy to be asked.
