(Fargo, ND) -- Following his rousing state of the state address at the Fargo Theater earlier this week, Governor Doug Burgum sat down for an exclusive one-on-one conversation with WDAY Radio Senior Reporter Tom Tucker to talk about a multitude of topics.

Governor Burgum talked his recent battle with COVID-19, and the advantages of what having the vaccine and his booster shot did for him. He has reiterated though that the vaccine should be a topic discussed with your doctor if you should or should not get it.

The Governor also talks about the latest trucker blockades and protests across Canada, including the issues from this past week near the Pembina-Emerson border.
