Republican Doug Burgum takes office as the 33rd governor of North Dakota Thursday.

His biography on the official state website says he brings a business leader’s approach to diversifying the economy, creating 21st century jobs, and revitalizing our main streets.

There's a swearing-in ceremony January 3 in the North Dakota House of Representatives, during which Burgum will deliver his state of the state address.
