About Congressman Armstrong:

Congressman Kelly Armstrong is a lifelong, devoted North Dakotan and a tireless advocate for making North Dakota a better place to live and work. Armstrong’s childhood in Dickinson, North Dakota, inspired in him a passion for the outdoors. In the summers, he could be found on Lake Sakakawea and during the fall he was bow hunting in the badlands.
After graduating from Dickinson High School in 1995, Armstrong attended the University of North Dakota but continued to grow his roots in Dickinson, returning home in the summers to coach the Dickinson Roughriders American Legion baseball team. Armstrong earned a bachelor’s degree from UND in 2001 and a law degree from UND law school in 2003.

It was at UND law school where he met the love of his life, Kjersti. She was part of a law school exchange program with her university in Norway. They married in 2004 and spent the early years of their marriage in Grand Forks, where he began his law career while Kjersti finished her degree.

Armstrong and Kjersti later moved back home to Dickinson, and he opened a second office of the law firm. While practicing law, he became known as someone who worked tirelessly for his clients and gained the respect of his counterparts, the judiciary and law enforcement.

Armstrong grew his service to the community in 2012, when he was elected to the North Dakota State Senate for District 36. Chairing multiple committees during his service, Armstrong spearheaded DUI reform legislation, a $2 billion statewide infrastructure investment and solving the lakebed mineral crisis.

Armstrong was elected Chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party in 2015 after seeing firsthand the need for decisive and effective leadership of the party. Armstrong led the state party in 2016 to landslide victories for President Donald Trump, Gov. Doug Bergum and North Dakota legislative majorities.

Armstrong serves on the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Reform Committee for the 116th Congress. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives representing the entire state of North Dakota in 2018 and began his first term on January 3, 2019.
