WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Rep. Susi Hamilton says she will run for reelection this year. The Democrat, who represents the 18th District in the state House of Representatives, is in the middle of her first term after winning election in 2010.
After a late night at work in Raleigh, Hamilton told WWAY this morning that she is definitely going to run again and is "100 percent committed."
Newly drawn district lines could have a big factor on the race for the 18th District, though. In 2010, the district covered most of northeastern New Hanover County, including much of the City of Wilmington. Based on the newly-drawn district maps based on the 2010 Census, the district shifts west to cover mainly minority-majority districts around downtown Wilmington and in northern and central Brunswick County.
