Sen. Kent Conrad announced Tuesday he won’t seek re-election next year, becoming the last of North Dakota’s three long-serving Democrats in Congress to bid farewell to the Capitol and busting the 2012 Senate race wide open.
Dave Thompson says it was “very seldom we saw him sitting anywhere.”
Thompson, who helped create a new one-hour documentary looking at the daily life of former North Dakota Sen. Byron Dorgan, was struck by the busyness of the state’s former senator.
