BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger has returned to work after taking a month of unpaid leave to seek treatment for alcohol addiction.

Rauschenberger was on the job Thursday after spending the last several weeks at an alcohol treatment facility in Minnesota.

Rauschenberger announced in September that he was taking the unpaid leave of absence.

Democratic candidate Jason Astrup says the only place Rauschenberger had been seen publicly is on television campaign advertising. Astrup says he would like to debate his opponent before the Nov. 4 election.

Rauschenberger tells The Associated Press that he also wants to debate his opponent on issues facing the Tax Department.
