GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - A part-time pastor wants the nomination of the North Dakota Democratic NPL to run for the U.S. Senate seat in 2012.

Dr. Thomas Potter is a pastor with a Ph.D. in finance from the University of Colorado at Boulder and also graduated from the school of law.

Potter is comfortable with the political scene. He's the husband of former Grand Forks representative Louise "Weezie" Potter.

There are several issues Potter wants to work on both in Washington and North Dakota.

"Somebody needs to add North Dakota wisdom to the process. Most of the troubles have to do with budgets and tax laws and that happens to be my area of expertise, so I thought I would ask around and see if it's a good idea," Potter said.

Potter is seeing what kind of feedback he gets to obtain the nomination at the state convention in March.
