Statement from Secretary of State Elaine Marshall:
â€œOn Tuesday, I filed my papers to set up an Exploratory Committee for United States Senate. With unemployment at the highest level in decades, foreclosures continuing to increase and people still losing their healthcare, North Carolinians need experienced leaders who will get things done. I look forward to working with people across the state to build consensus and find solutions.
Our current Senator, Richard Burr, has spent 14 years in Washington. He supported the misguided policies that brought our economy to its knees and, now, heâ€™s standing in the way of efforts to get us back on the right track. As a state, we deserve better.â€
