FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Democrats still need candidates

for state tax commissioner and attorney general on the eve of their

state convention.

About 700 Democratic delegates are expected to gather at the

Fargo Civic Auditorium on Friday and Saturday. They'll be choosing

favored candidates for seven state offices and paying tribute to

Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan, who is leaving the Senate this year.

Of the seven offices on the November ballot, the only Democratic

incumbent is U.S. Rep. Earl Pomeroy. He is seeking his 10th term.

State Democratic chairman Mark Schneider says delegates are

energized by Congress' approval of a health care overhaul bill.

Schneider believes Pomeroy will benefit politically from supporting

the measure.
