BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota Public Service Commission Chairman Brian Kalk says he will seek the Republican Party endorsement to run for re-election.

Kalk was elected to the PSC in 2008 and is seeking his second six-year term.

Kalk is former Marine and has a doctorate in natural resources. He also is a former North Dakota State University professor.

Fargo businessman Todd Reisenauer is seeking the Democratic-NPL Party's endorsement to challenge Kalk in the November election.

The PSC is a three-member panel that regulates coal mining, land reclamation, pipelines, electric and gas utilities, grain elevators, telecommunications and auctioneers. A big part of its recent workload has involved determining locations for oil and natural gas pipelines, natural gas processing factories and wind energy projects.
