A Democratic primary is shaping up for the congressional seat held by 5th district Republican Virginia Foxx.
Elisabeth Motsinger, a Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school board member and a Democrat, has filed paperwork to run for the seat. She plans to announce her candidacy Tuesday, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
Treva Johnson, the Wilkes County Democratic Party chair, announced her candidacy last year.
Whoever wins the Democratic primary will find it a difficult race in a GOP-leaning district. Foxx also had $1.3 million in campaign treasury at the end of September.
