Miller considering a bid for governor of North Dakota



Bismarck, North Dakota – Many are debating whether or not to run for the top post in Bismarck in the wake of Governor Doug Burgum’s decision that he will not pursue a third term in office.

Tammy Miller, the lieutenant governor, is among them.

The Lieutenant Governor’s advisor, Dawson Schefter, told WDAY Radio News on Monday afternoon that the Lieutenant Governor is “seriously considering a run for governor and will have a decision soon.”

On January 3, 2023, Miller took the oath of office as North Dakota’s 39th lieutenant governor. From April 2020 to December 2022, she held the position of Chief Operating Officer in the Governor’s Office, collaborating with cabinet agencies to improve the provision of government services, foster innovation, and increase citizen attention.

She was previously the CEO of Border States, the sixth-largest electrical distributor in North America, which is situated in Fargo.
