NDGOP Convention Halted After Delegate Has Apparent Heart Attack

A scary moment at the NDGOP state convention today.

While Governor Jack Dalrymple was addressing delegates party officials and security officials ran to the south side of the convention hall where a delegate had fallen ill.

According to Bismarck Tribune reporter Nick Smith, the delegate is father-in-law to Auditor candidate Josh Gallion, and he apparently had a heart attack.

Proceedings were halted for about 20 minutes until the man could be taken out of the arena by first responders, at which point Dalrymple resumed his speech with a moment of silence.

UPDATE: Reports to the convention state that the man is in stable condition.
