The 2000 North Dakota gubernatorial election took place on 7 November 2000 for the post of Governor of North Dakota. Incumbent Republican Governor Ed Schafer decided not to run for reelection. Republican nominee John Hoeven won the election. Heitkamp had led in the polls until early October, when reports indicated that she had breast cancer, and would undergo surgery. She ran advertisements to assure voters she was still fit to serve. But by the final month, Hoeven had taken a six-point lead in a poll. Coincidentally, both were serving simultaneously as the senior and junior U.S Senators, respectively, from the State of North Dakota from 2013 to 2019.
