The North Dakota Republican Convention is underway in Minot.
Hundreds of delegates are on hand for the two-day event.
Four endorsements for statewide office were given out today.
Incumbent U.S. Congressman Kevin Cramer was unopposed at the convention.
He will take on Democrat State Senator George Sinner in November's election.
Cramer's replacement as public service commissioner Julie Fedorchak also went unopposed for a full term in that post.
She will face Democrat State Senator Tyler Axness.
Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem was also unchallenged for the G-O-P's endorsement.
Stenehjem will face Democrat Kiara Kraus-Parr.
And Ryan Rauschenberger was unchallenged for the state tax commissioner post.
Rauschenberger is running for a full term after taking over that position last year.
He will face Fargo attorney Democrat Jason Astrup.
The convention wraps up tomorrow with the hotly contested endorsement for North Dakota Ag Commissioner.
