Etheridge hasn’t yet filed for governor

By GARY D. ROBERTSON

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — As the number of official candidates for North Carolina governor continues to climb, one high-profile competitor has been relatively quiet as the deadline approaches.

Former US Rep. Bob Etheridge announced his bid Feb. 2, a week after fellow Democrat and Gov. Bev Perdue said she wouldn’t seek a second term. Etheridge has formed a campaign committee but had yet to file his candidacy papers with the State Board of Elections as of Monday afternoon. The 2½-week filing period ends at noon Wednesday.

Etheridge didn’t immediately return a call to his Harnett County home Monday seeking comment. A longtime Etheridge campaign fundraiser said the campaign would be back in touch.

Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton and state Rep. Bill Faison are the other leading candidates for the May 8 primary.
