(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakota's Agriculture Commissioner is setting the stage as to why voters should re-elect him in the upcoming November General Election.

Doug Goehring is North Dakota's Agriculture Commissioner. He joined WDAY Midday to speak about the challenges he's seen across the state, programs developed in North Dakota that are being used across the country, and future challenges that residents can see in the future.

"There is a lot to do out there... this is much like farming, if you're bored that means you didn't look out your door," said Goehring, speaking about the campaign so far.

Goehring says the federal government has adopted four programs which were pioneered by North Dakota, which he says were developed through a cooperation between the Agriculture industry and the state's Department of Agriculture. He says the programs have genuinely improved the livelihoods in our state and across the nation.

Doug Goehring is looking to be re-elected on the November ballot to maintain his position as the state's Agriculture Commissioner. You can learn more about voting in North Dakota by clicking here
