Senator John Hoeven Thursday released the following statement after the president nominated former Lt. Governor Drew Wrigley to again serve as the U.S. Attorney for North Dakota.
“Drew is well-qualified to serve as U.S. Attorney for North Dakota, having already served in this position for nearly a decade,” said Hoeven. “He has a strong record of investigating and prosecuting federal crimes in North Dakota and has helped provide justice for victims and their families during his prior service as U.S. Attorney. We look forward to moving his nomination through the Senate as quickly as possible.”
Wrigley served as Lt. Governor of North Dakota from 2010 to 2016. Prior to that, he served as U.S. Attorney for North Dakota from 2001 to 2009. He received his bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of North Dakota and is a graduate of the American University Washington College of Law. Following law school, Wrigley served as a prosecuting attorney in the Office of the Fargo City Attorney and as an assistant district attorney in Philadelphia from 1993 to 1998.
