BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Republican state lawmaker from Wahpeton has died.

The North Dakota governor’s office says Rep. John Wall died Friday. He was 70.

Wall was elected to the North Dakota House in 2004. That came following his retirement from a 34-year career of teaching high school English and journalism.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple says Wall worked hard on improving education funding for kindergarten through high school and on education policy in general.

Dalrymple says Wall was an “outstanding legislator” and a “kind and thoughtful person.”
