Two or three seats on the North Carolina Supreme Court will be up for grabs next year.

The list of candidates to fill those spots is growing. Former State Senator Tamara Barringer, of Cary, told supporters Tuesday that she would seek a court sport in 2020.

The attorney and university professor served in the legislature for over six years before losing in November.

Barringer says she'll seek an associate justice's seat. It's unclear if one or two will be open. It depends on whether Governor Copper elevates someone already on the court when he names a successor to Chief Justice Mark Martin, who is resigning as of February 28th.

Court of Appeals Judges Lucy Inman and Phil Berger Jr. say they also intend to run for the state's highest court.
