NC Rep. Hall won’t run for U.S. Senate

State Rep. Duane Hall, who flirted with the idea of running for U.S. Senate, said Tuesday that he’ll run for reelection to his Raleigh House seat after all.

Hall, a Democrat in his second term, had been hesitant since he first discussed his interest in the Senate race. Democrats have struggled to find a candidate willing to challenge Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr, who is in his second term.

“My biggest concern all along was finding a credible challenge against Richard Burr and I believe that person will soon come forward,” he said in a statement.

Former state Rep. Deborah Ross, a Raleigh Democrat, has left her job at GoTriangle and is considering running.

Spring Lake Mayor Chris Rey announced last month that he is running.
