History

Since the creation of the office with the state's constitution in 1889, the state has seen a total of 28 Attorneys General. The office has been known to change hands rather quickly; no one has held the office for more than 8 years. The office has been held by the North Dakota Republican Party for a wide majority of its existence; only three of the 28 Attorneys General were from the state's Democratic Party and two Attorney Generals ran on the Non Partisan League-ticket. The Attorney General originally served a two-year term, but this was extended to four in 1964 by a constitutional amendment.
