The candidate field continues to expand as filing for the 2014 elections enters its final week.
New in the mix is Will Stewart, a Hampstead-based Democrat who filed Monday for U.S. Senate–meaning incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan, also a Democrat, will face a primary in May. Four Republicans had previously filed for that seat: Mark Harris of Charlotte, Heather Grant of Wilkesboro, Ted Alexander of
Shelby, and Greg
Brannon of Cary.
