BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) --North Dakota Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger has formally launched his campaign for the Republican Party's nomination to run for the position.
Rauschenberger was deputy tax commissioner when Gov. Jack Dalrymple late last year appointed him to serve the final year of then-Commissioner Cory Fong's term. Fong resigned at the end of the year to work for a Bismarck-based advertising agency.
Fargo attorney Jason Astrup says he will seek the Democratic endorsement for tax commissioner.
