John "Jack" Dalrymple (born October 16, 1948) is a North Dakota politician and businessman who is the current Governor of North Dakota, and a one-time candidate for the U.S. Senate in 1992. Dalrymple became governor after the resignation of John Hoeven, who was elected to the U.S. Senate on November 2, 2010 (in accordance with the gubernatorial succession provisions of the Constitution of North Dakota). Two days later, on November 4, 2010, Dalrymple named former United States Attorney Drew Wrigley as Lieutenant Governor-designate. On December 7, 2010, Dalrymple was sworn in as governor, and then Wrigley was sworn in as lieutenant governor. Neither man has announced his plan for the 2012 election cycle.
