BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp has invited Fargo UPS driver Dennis Kooren to be her guest for President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday.

Heitkamp says Kooren has been a leader of the effort to protect the pensions of North Dakota workers and retirees.

The other two members of North Dakota’s congressional delegation announced their picks last week. U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer invited CEO Tommy Fisher of Dickinson-based Fisher Industries, and U.S. Sen. John Hoeven invited Miss America Cara Mund, a Bismarck native.
