FARGO -- Rep. Earl Pomeroy said today that he plans to seek re-election this fall to his Congressional seat.

During a news conference, Pomeroy said he was stunned when Democratic U.S. Sen. Byron Dorgan announced late Tuesday afternoon he would not seek re-election this year.

Political people in the know had named Pomeroy as a possible Democratic candidate for Dorgan's Senate seat, a notion he dismissed earlier today. Pomeroy's congressional seat is also up for election when voters go to the polls in November.

Pomeroy said he called a news conference to discuss his 2010 plans because he had received numerous calls inquiring about his intentions once Dorgan announced his retirement.
