David Andahl, a Republican who died from coronavirus in October 2020, has been elected into the North Dakota state legislature.
The late legislator who is a “Trump Republican” according to the Grand Forks Herald, ran a primary challenge against another powerful Republican and won earlier this year.
Andahl was elected to the state House of Representatives for the 8th District on Tuesday alongside fellow Republican Dave Nehring, North Dakota election officials declared.
The North Dakota rep was 55 when he died on 5th October, less than a week after he was admitted to the hospital for coronavirus infection.
As of last week, the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention said the North Dakota coronavirus rate is over 150 cases per 100,000 people.
