North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum is joining the growing 2024 primary field, making him the latest Republican to challenge former President Trump for the party’s nomination.
“We need a change in the White House. We need a new leader for a changing economy. That’s why I’m announcing my run for president today,” he wrote.
Burgum, who has served as the governor of the Peace Garden State since 2016, launched a long-shot bid for the White House on Wednesday while speaking in Fargo. Burgum’s formal campaign launch followed multiple news reports suggesting a White House bid was in the works.
