North Dakota’s longest-serving attorney general died on Friday of unknown causes at age 68, his office reported.
Wayne Stenehjem died in a Bismarck hospital at 6:20 p.m., a few hours after being taken there from a medical call to his home.
Stenehjem had recently announced that he would not seek another term as attorney general so he could travel and spend more time with his family.

He had served as attorney general since being elected in 2000, and was re-elected 5 times.
