Brad Miller is running.....for the House. Just got back from meeting with the U.S. Representative. He has decided not to run against Senator Elizabeth Dole. He says it's because he doesn't want to put his family through a potentially nasty campaign.
But how close was he to running??? Here's a quote from my interview with him.
"As recently as last week I was leaning pretty strongly toward doing it, now I think I'd probably have to drag my wife to the announcement not quite kicking and screaming. Obviously I wanted to do it."
He says he believes he could have won and Dole is still vulnerable.
Names people still are putting in the hat include Sen. Kay Hagan and several folks have mentioned Rep. Grier Martin as someone who is also interested.
