Only young has filed as a Republican and supports the democratic candidate was William L. guy of Bismarck, North Dakota, who served as Governor from 1961 to 1973 and, presumably, left the office to run for the Senate. The young and the guy won the primary election for their participants. The guy who was a very popular Governor throughout the state, and young, who had the highest approval rating in the Senate, is created at the next election for one of the North Dakota Senate seats. Young only got 177 votes, and the guy retired from politics.

Two independent candidates, James R. Jungroth and Kenneth S. Gardner, also filed before the deadline. Platform Jungroths was based on his opposition to the mining States coal reserves. Later, Gardner ran for other States seats in 1988 against the then incumbent Quentin Burdick.
