Cal Cunningham makes it official: He's running for U.S. Senate

Posted by on Mon, Dec 7, 2009 at 10:13 AM

He was and then he wasn't and now he is: Former state Sen. Cal Cunningham planned to run for U.S. Senate, but the Democrat and Iraq War veteran officially announces his candidacy today. Read his official statement here: cunningham-announces-candidacy-for-us-senate

When Rep. Bob Etheridge, who many thought would challenge Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr, bowed out, it left the door open for Cunningham, who had already mulled running for the seat.

Secretary of State Elaine Marshall and Durham lawyer Ken Lewis are also vying for the Democratic nomination.

Former Chapel Hill Mayor Kevin Foy, also a Democrat, had considered running, but opted not to last week.
