Republican kicks off 2014 Senate run in Wilmington tomorrow


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The next election for US Senate in North Carolina is still more than 20 months away, but a challenger officially joins that race tomorrow in Wilmington.

Greg Brannon, a Cary obstetrician, will officially launch his run for Senate with an event at 9 a.m. at the New Hanover County Executive Development Center on Military Cutoff Road.

The event is the start of a two-day, eight-city kickoff tour for Brannon, a Republican, who hopes to challenge incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan, a Democrat. North Carolina's junior senator is in the middle of her first term in Washington after beating Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole in 2008.

Is that really necessary?

What is the freaking rush to get into the Senate? It's not like anything will have changed 20 months from now. Those horses-behinds haven't even passed one budget in over three years!

Give us a break. It's bad enough having to go through the pain of watching our Congressional "leaders" do nothing but fight on a daily basis without some of them also campaigning (lying) all of the time. Shouldn't we be able to get some peaceful campaign-free time off from this crap? Is that asking too much? Greg Brannon should be sited as a public nuisance

Brannon's campaign manager Reilly O'Neal

We need an interview with his campaign manager Reilly O'Neal. Public records indicate O'Neal wrote bad checks in 2 states which resulted in the loss of insurance licenses in both states.

Good luck Mr Brannon, Hagan

Good luck Mr Brannon, Hagan has been a black eye for this state since the day she was elected, we sure need to get the senate under control.
