(Bismarck, ND) -- Governor Doug Burgum is inviting President Biden to visit North Dakota's Bakken oil fields.
Burgum sent Biden a letter Tuesday saying he believes North Dakota could play a role in ensuring the nation's security. The governor said he wants Biden to "see firsthand" the ways North Dakota's clean, efficient production practices can increase the nation's energy independence.
North Dakota Congressman Kelly Armstrong paired up with Texas Congressman August Pfluger in an earlier letter inviting the President to their respective states to see how each can meet the country's energy needs following the President's ban on Russian oil imports.
