North Dakota re-elects agriculture commissioner in oil-focused race

By Ernest Scheyder

WILLISTON N.D. (Reuters) – North Dakota, the second-largest U.S. oil producer, re-elected Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring on Tuesday, as voters opted to retain the status quo for a position that helps regulate the state’s burgeoning energy industry.

The state sits atop the prolific Bakken shale formation and produces more than 1.1 million barrels of oil a day, helping the United States reduce foreign imports of crude and sharply boosting North Dakota’s prominence on the international stage.
