Marshall gets endorsements for US Senate race
RALEIGH, N.C. — The mayors of two of North Carolina’s largest municipalities have endorsed Secretary of State Elaine Marshall in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.
Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker and Cary Mayor Harold Weinbrecht are on a list released Monday by Marshall’s campaign of more than 20 current and former Wake County elected officials supporting her nomination.
Meeker cited what he called Marshall’s network of statewide support in endorsing her to challenge Republican incumbent Richard Burr this fall. Marshall has won four statewide elections since 1996.
The endorsement list also included county commissioners, Cary and Raleigh council members and other mayors.
Marshall’s top rivals for the May nomination are former state Sen. Cal Cunningham and Chapel Hill attorney Kenneth Lewis.
