Marshall to seek 5th term as Secretary of State

READ MORE:

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall is seeking another four years in office.

Marshall announced to supporters Thursday that she will seek re-election next year. The Harnett County Democrat first was elected in 1996 and has won three times since, making her the longest-serving member on the Council of State.

The 65-year-old Marshall ran for US Senate last year but lost to Republican incumbent Richard Burr.

The secretary of state oversees the records for North Carolina businesses, regulates lobbyists and enforces financial securities laws. Marshall's office has been investigating whether state laws were broken related to problems on the University of North Carolina football team.

Marshall wrote in an email that she's running again so she can keep protecting consumers and go after what she calls "Wall Street crooks."
