CHAPEL HILL (AP) — The two announced candidates to lead North Carolina Democrats are getting together before an audience to discuss their goals after a difficult 2012 election in state politics for their party.
Pittsboro Mayor Randy Voller and former state Sen. Eric Mansfield of Fayetteville planned to attend a public forum Wednesday evening in Chapel Hill, hosted by the Orange County Democratic Party.
Mansfield and Voller are seeking to succeed David Parker as North Carolina Democratic Party chairman. The party’s executive committee meets Feb. 2 in Durham to choose.
Republicans expanded their majorities in the House, Senate and Executive Mansion in November.
