BISMARCK -- Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm told North Dakotans in October that he would be running for election this year. But today he made it official, saying he'll work to continue and expand consumer health insurance and prescription drug programs.

Gov. John Hoeven appointed Hamm insurance commissioner last fall following previous commissioner Jim Poolman's resignation. The appointment came with the understanding that Hamm would seek election this year to a four-year term.

Hamm began a series of campaign kickoff events in Bismarck this morning, and plans to repeat his announcements in West Fargo this afternoon and in Grand Forks and Minot Thursday.

He said it's important to further educate North Daktoans about the Prescription Connection program that helps low-income people tap into drug companies' free or reduced-cost prescriptions. He aims to expand awareness to the American Indian community and to reach more people through information at day-care providers and schools.
