BISMARCK, N.D. — Republican governor candidate Doug Burgum is releasing his second television advertisement of the general election campaign.

The statewide ad focuses on Burgum’s so-called Main Street Initiative aimed at rebuilding downtowns across North Dakota to keep and attract workers.

Burgum’s campaign declined to disclose the size and the cost of the buy. Burgum’s first ad focused on his pledge to work with lawmakers to balance the state budget without raising taxes.

The Fargo businessman faces Democrat Marvin Nelson in November. Nelson’s campaign hasn’t run any television advertisements.

Nelson says he hopes to film an ad soon to run ahead of the Nov. 8 election.
