Senate leader Phil Berger said he is still looking at challenging Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan.
"We are taking a serious look at it," he told WPTF's Bill Lumaye on Friday. "We will have an announcement some time in the next couple of months.''
He also knocked Hagan's decision to ask U.S. Attorney Eric Holder to take a look at the new voting law passed by the legislature.
"Senator Hagan has for almost six years now been in Washington and has consistently taken stands and has advocated positions which are inconsistent with the views of the vast majority of the people of North Carolina,'' he said.
