MINOT, N.D. — Scott Decker, the mayor of Dickinson, has decided against a campaign to replace retiring Secretary of State Al Jaeger.
Decker had told me he was considering a campaign when I contacted him in late January , but when I spoke with him today he said he’d decided against a run.
Decker has been mayor since 2016, and before that he was elected to the Dickinson City Commission in 2014. He’s a graduate of Dickinson State University and a 21-year Army veteran.
That leaves Rep. Michael Howe, a Republican from Casselton, as the only candidate in that race from any political party.
