Cunningham To Challenge Burr For NC Senate Seat

A former state senator says he will challenge North Carolina U.S. Sen. Richard Burr next year.

Cal Cunningham said in a statement Monday that he wants to fight against special interests in Washington. Cunningham is a Democrat and Army veteran who served in Iraq.

Cunningham had long been considering a run against Burr but said last month that he would not, saying it was "the wrong race at the wrong time for me and my family."

Burr is seeking a second term in the Senate in next year's elections.

Other Democratic challengers include North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall and Durham attorney Kenneth Lewis.
