GRAND FORKS—Dickinson state Sen. Kelly Armstrong was endorsed by North Dakota Republicans for Congress here Saturday, April 7.

Armstrong defeated fellow state Sen. Tom Campbell of Grafton on the first ballot, earning the support of 847 delegates to Campbell's 480. Campbell has not ruled out a primary election run in June.

Democrats endorsed Mac Schneider, a former state Senate minority leader, less than a month ago.
