Another Dem takes a pass in North Dakota

Another prospective Democratic Senate candidate is out in North Dakota:

Kristin Hedger, a former Secretary of State candidate and prospective candidate for North Dakota’s U.S. Senate race, said today she will not seek the Democratic endorsement this year.

For the last two months, Hedger had considered a challenge to Gov. John Hoeven, the presumed Republican nominee, in the November election to claim the spot Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., has held since 1992.

Dorgan announced in early January that he would not seek re-election. State Sen. Tracy Potter, D-Bismarck, is the only Democrat to announce intentions to seek the party’s nomination this year in the Senate race.

Former state Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp, another prospective Democratic candidate, announced last Wednesday that she would not seek the nomination.

At this point, Democrats should probably look toward the future and run someone they hope can learn from the experience for a future run.
