(Bismarck, ND) — A former North Dakota legislator is running for Congress.

Dr. Rick Becker, former state Representative and chairman of End Unfair Property Tax, announced the launch of his campaign for the sole Congressional seat Monday morning.

Becker, a plastic surgeon, was elected to the North Dakota State House in 2012, and reelected in 2014 and 2018.

“Washington, DC is packed with corrupt politicians more concerned with funding foreign conflicts than addressing the issues we face here at home. The only solution is to elect proven conservative fighters who have a record of standing up to the establishment and fighting for We The People,” Becker said in a statement. “The Biden administration is crushing North Dakota’s middle class through skyrocketing inflation. The failure to declare an illegal invasion at the border and take immediate action is grounds for impeachment alone, but the current House Republicans refuse to act.”

Becker is challenging Congressman Kelly Armstrong, who has held the seat since 2019.
