Rep. Larry Kissell has one less challenger vying for his congressional seat.
“I’ve pretty well given up on a Congressional run,” Dockham said. He said he believes he could better represent his constituents as a legislator in Raleigh, N.C.
Kissell, who has been labeled among the “most vulnerable” Democrats after redistricting, still has plenty of Republicans interested in his seat.
Robinson entered the 13th congressional district race (Rep. Brad Miller’s seat) in July, only to decide a few weeks later to move to Concord and try his luck in the 8th district.
