Former US Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-Dunn), who served three terms in Washington before being denied re-nomination after a court-mandated redistricting plan paired her with fellow Republican Rep. George Holding (R-Raleigh), is surfacing again. The former Congresswoman is now planning to run for the open Lt. Governor’s position.
At this point, it is difficult to forecast electoral probability but her move into a statewide race will not go unchallenged. Ms. Ellmers can be expected to draw several Republican opponents in the statewide primary.
