New legislators, new leadership in N.D. Legislature
Rep. Bob Martinson, a Republican from District 35 in Bismarck, is about as close as you can get to being the Tom Brady in North Dakota politics. Brady turned 45 this year, and Martinson is (by my math) currently serving his 45th year in the N.D. Legislative Assembly. Martinson was reelected in November and will return to the House when it convenes for the 68th Legislative Assembly in January, shortly after Brady’s final regular season game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jan. 8.
