Brad Miller: Yup, I'm thinking about it

Posted by on Mon, Jan 30, 2012 at 11:26 AM

Congressman Brad Miller, who stepped aside last week for David Price, is in the thick of the speculation about replacing Bev Perdue on the Democratic ticket.

Today, Miller said he's undecided about running in the primary for governor. But:

“I had not given the first thought to running for governor before Thursday. Shortly after Governor Perdue’s announcement, I began receiving unsolicited encouragement to run.

I have worked on national issues for the last nine years, but I spent eight years in the legislature and I care a lot about state issues.

In addition to the calls and e-mails I’ve received without asking, I’ve made a few calls to people who have supported me in the past. I am encouraged that if I do decide to run, I would begin with a credible base and would be able to put together a campaign quickly.”
