North Dakota’s Lt. Gov. Admits to Extramarital Affair; Still Has Eyes on Governor’s Office

Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley with his wife by his side says the decision to go public with his extramarital affair was their decision.

Wrigley says he is still considering a run for the Governor’s seat after current Gov. Jack Dalrymple announced he wouldn’t be seeking another term.

Wrigley says he told his wife about the affair several months ago and he spoke to Gov. Dalrymple about it.

A spokesman says the governor continues to have faith in Wrigley.
