RALEIGH, N.C. -- Five of the six Democrats seeking to fill the Senate seat currently held by North Carolina Republican Richard Burr are scheduled to be together to share their vision for the job.
The primary candidates were scheduled to participate in a forum Wednesday evening organized by the Democratic Women of Wake County. The event at a Raleigh hotel will include candidate introductions and responses to questions offered by the audience and the candidates themselves.
A group spokeswoman said the candidates expected to attend are former state Sen. Cal Cunningham, Chapel Hill attorney Ken Lewis, Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, Lumberton lawyer Marcus Williams and Ann Worthy of Gastonia.
The primary election is May 4. Burr also faces three candidates in the GOP primary.
