(Fargo, ND) -- Bismarck native and former Miss America Cara Mund is traveling North Dakota in her bid for a congressional nomination.

Mund was in Fargo at the West Acres Mall over the weekend collecting signatures for her petition to be added to the November ballot for the U.S. House of Representatives. She needs a thousand signatures to qualify to run as an independent.

If Mund is elected, she would be the first female Congresswoman to represent North Dakota.

She'll be in Grand Forks Monday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Archives Coffee House and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Myra Museum Gazebo. Mund will be back in Fargo Tuesday at West Acres Mall from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
