Tillis Will Run for U.S. Senate in North Carolina

North Carolina state House Speaker Thom Tillis (R) said he plans to run for the U.S. Senate seat held by Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) next year, making him the first high-profile Republican to announce a bid, the AP reports.

Raleigh News and Observer: "Tillis could face a crowded primary. Others named as possible contenders include U.S. Reps. Virginia Foxx of Banner Elk and Renee Ellmers of Dunn; state Sen. Phil Berger; and former ambassador Jim Cain. So far, however, Dr. Greg Bannon, a Cary OB-GYN, is the only Republican Senate candidate who has announced."
