InfoGaylord Kent Conrad

Beginning with his first Senate race in 1986, North Dakotans have sent Kent Conrad to represent them in the Senate in four successive elections.

Conrad is a renowned advocate of fiscal discipline and the protection of the Social Security and Medicare trust funds, especially in his role as ranking member of the

Budget Committee and as a senior member of the Senate Finance Committee. As the representative of one of the most rural states in the nation, Conrad also serves as a senior member of the Senate Agriculture Committee.

A fifth-generation North Dakotan, Senator Conrad was born on March 12, 1948 in Bismarck, and attended Roosevelt Elementary and Hughes Junior High. He began his official career in politics in 1968 when, as a teenager, he headed up a statewide campaign to grant voting rights to 19-year-olds.

In 1980, Senator Conrad won his first statewide race for North Dakota Tax Commissioner. He was reelected to the office in 1984, with what, at the time, was the highest percentage of the vote (79%) in a contested race in state history. His subsequent 1986 Senate victory was among the biggest upsets in state history.

Senator Conrad holds a bachelor's degree from Stanford University, and an MBA from George Washington University. He is married to Lucy Calautti, and has a daughter, Jessamyn Conrad.
