BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Burleigh County Sheriff Pat Heinert (HY’-nurt) plans to make a run for the state Legislature.

Heinert says he’ll seek the Republican endorsement to run for the District 32 House seat that had been held by Mark Dosch of Bismarck since 2001. Dosch recently moved from the district.

Heinert is in the first year of a four-year term as sheriff. The secretary of state’s office says it’s OK for an elected county official to also serve in the Legislature.

Heinert is the first Republican to declare a candidacy in District 32.
