State Representative Resigns from North Dakota Legislature
Rep. Jake Blum resigned from his District 42 seat on October 4, citing a move to Minnesota.
Republicans in District 42 will select a replacement to fill the vacant seat.
However, the replacement will not serve in the Legislature without winning a future election, since lawmakers will not meet in full session again until 2021 because of North Dakota’s biennial format.
The person selected will fill Blum’s committee assignments in the interim.
The next election for District 42 will be November 2020.
