Senator Josh Stein (L) will face Sen. Buck Newton (R) in the race for NC Attorney General this November.

State Senator Josh Stein – a four-term Democrat from Wake County – announced this morning he would resign his legislative seat to focus on his bid for NC Attorney General.

Stein will face Senator Buck Newton – a three-term Republican from Wilson County – in November’s General Election.

The Wake County Democratic Party Executive Committee will recommend a replacement for Stein, who would then be formally appointed to the Senate District 16 seat by Gov. Pat McCrory.

Here’s the full announcement from Stein’s Facebook page:
