Republican Robert Fors won the North Dakota Senate seat in District 19 that was left vacant by Sen. Tom Campbell. He got 68 percent of the vote with all precincts reporting in complete but unofficial results.
His opponent, Nikolaus Groenewold, got 31 percent of the vote with all precincts reporting.
District 19 represents most of Grand Forks County and the eastern part of Walsh County.
Fors, from Larimore, served in the Air Force for 24 years before retiring as a chief master sergeant. Fors said he is against the legalization of marijuana. He also wants to see money in the state budget go toward infrastructure needs in smaller towns such as Larimore and Grafton.
Campbell ran for U.S. House but lost the Republican nomination to Dickinson's Kelly Armstrong.

Incumbents Gary Paur and Wayne Trottier took the open seats in the House of Representatives in North Dakota's District 19 with all precincts reporting in complete but unofficial results. Paur and Trottier are both Republicans.
Trottier took 42 percent of the vote and Paur 36 percent. Their Democratic opponent, Linda Ott Tangen, got 20 percent of the vote.
These results are according to information on the Secretary of State website at 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
Paur is a retired farmer. He has been in the House since 2011 and is running for re-election. He is running because he enjoys being immersed in and learning about the legislative process. "The process is fascinating with a great group of people doing what they believe to be best for the state," Paur said. Paur wants the Legislature in 2019 to pass the Prairie Dog Bill.
Trottier, an auctioneer, was first elected in 2009 and has served on the tax and finance committee and the agriculture committee.
