Stenehjem won with 823 votes or 50.82% of the vote.  He needed 819 votes to win the majority. Becker came in second with 618 votes or 37.75% of the vote. Burgum came in third with 157 votes or 9.59% of the vote.  1637 delegates were present at the convention.

This first round of voting saw Stenehjem with 47% of the vote with 769 votes, Becker at 35.9% of the vote with 587 votes and Burgum with 15.1% of the vote with 247 votes.

It was the party's first three-way race for governor since 1992.

North Dakota Republican convention delegates also endorsed current state schools superintendent Kirsten Baesler, Public Service Commissioner Julie Fedorchak, and Treasurer Kelly Schmidt.

^ Naturally. And it's good that the most extreme Republican candidate  is eliminated...

Raging moderate. Big fan of "mavericks" (in all parties) and big non-lover of "reliable foot soldiers" (in all parties as well). Very much "anti-tea party". Political Matrix - E: -0.26, S: -3.48. Like to collect bans on partisan sites (4-5 on DKE (+ SSP) and on RRH).

ND Republicans don't have primaries, they have a state convention and it was this weekend.

For state races, I believe the convention's decision can be overturned with a primary that you petition to get on (for instance, current Rep. Kevin Cramer actually lost the convention endorsement to Brian Kalk, but petitioned for a primary and won). I believe Burgum plans on challenging Stenehjem in a primary.

Do they not have people with easy to spell names in the Dakotas? Daugaard ... Hoeven ... Dalrymple ... Heidtkamp ... now Stenehjem.

Not so, they have a convention but it is somewhat non-binding.

Doug Burgum (and Paul Sorum) are running in the North Dakota Primary to be the Republican nominee for governor that will be held on June 14.

It's very Scandinavian and Dutch there, in relative terms.
