Oversen back as North Dakota Democratic-NPL chair

Kylie Oversen

BISMARCK — A former North Dakota lawmaker has been elected again as the Democratic-NPL party chair, the Bismarck Tribune reported.

The party elected its executive officers on Saturday, April 13, in Bismarck, returning Kylie Oversen to the position she held until resigning in 2018 during her unsuccessful campaign for state tax commissioner as the Democratic-NPL nominee. Oversen was previously a House lawmaker from Grand Forks but lost her bid in 2016 for a second term.

“I am excited to get back to working on behalf of North Dakotans of all political stripes," Oversen said in a party statement.

Oversen, a lawyer, succeeds Warren Larson, who was the party chair for 10 months after Oversen resigned last year.

Democrats hold no statewide office in North Dakota and face Republican supermajorities of 79-15 in the House and 37-10 in the Senate.
