WEST FARGO, ND — A long-time former television news anchor in the valley is seeking a new job in politics.

He is now the Business Development Manager at ProSource in Fargo.

If successful, Schauer would replace Republican Representative Chris Olson who announced last week he will not be seeking re-election.
