A businessman in Beaufort County is making his first run at public office.
Beaufort County businessman Wayne Langston announced Monday he will run for the Republican nomination for the North Carolina State House three seat which represents part of Beaufort, Pamlico, and much of Craven County.
The seat Langston is looking to take is currently held by Norm Sanderson who is expected to run for the Senate District two seat.
Langston, a real estate management director, is running as a fiscal conservative. He says the state budget crisis is a main priority and he's vowed to vote the issues and not the straight party line.
