BISMARCK -- About 700 people paid their final respects to Senate Majority Leader Bob Stenehjem at a rare event Sunday in the Capitol.


The funeral visitation in the Senate chamber marked the final time the leader will enter the room he's guided for the past decade.

State officials, lobbyists, constituents, friends and well-wishers from across the state waited in a long line streaming outside the chamber to say good-bye to Stenehjem.
