White Earth Tribal Chairwoman Erma Vizenor and District 3 Tribal Council Representative Kenneth "Gus" Bevins have both been re-elected to four year terms.


Both won their respective primary elections by more than 50 percent on Tuesday, which under tribal election rules means they are re-elected and there will be no general election this year.

"Now I can go to St. Paul and get that casino built," Vizenor said with a smile immediately after her victory.
