Email News Alerts

Morrie Lanning was Moorhead's mayor for 22 years and a city councilman for six years before that.

The Republican has served as a state representative for the past seven years.


During his time in public service, people have urged him to aim even higher.

Why not run for governor? Some have asked.

It's a question Lanning is again giving some thought to in the wake of Gov. Tim Pawlenty's announcement that he will not seek a third term.
