MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The longest-serving Republican official in the North Dakota Capitol has the party’s endorsement to seek another term.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger was first elected in 1992 to the office that is best known for supervising elections.

North Dakota Republican convention delegates picked Jaeger on Sunday in Minot as their favored candidate to run for re-election.

Jaeger faces a challenge in November from Democrat April Fairfield of Bismarck.

Fairfield served in the state Senate from 2002 to 2006 and in the House of Representatives from 1996 to 2002, representing Eldridge, a small town near Jamestown.
