BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA – Out with the old and in with the new  was the case today as Jack Dalrymple left office and Doug Burgum was sworn in as governor of North Dakota.

Just as former Governor Dalrymple did, the new governor thanked law enforcement for their jobs supporting the Dakota Access pipeline and said there is  “misinformation about the protests.”

They keep it consistent in the northern prairie state of North Dakota.
