“Ryan knows the state and he cares about North Dakota as much as I do,” Heitkamp stated in a news release. “Under his leadership, we will build a strong state organization that focuses on being an advocate on behalf of the citizens, communities and employers in North Dakota.”
Nagle said in the release that he looks forward to working with Heitkamp’s staff across the state “to make sure the issues North Dakotans face every day are addressed proactively.”
Nagle and his wife, Kjersten Nelson, have three children: Signe, Cormac and Eamonn.
