State Sen. Dan Blue of Raleigh said he was still weighing a bid for the Democratic nomination for governor.
“I'm still thinking, I'm still trying to see what the field looks like,” Blue, a former House Speaker, said minutes after Congressman Brad Miller announced he would not run.
“I have not ruled it out,” he said. “The thing is once you decide you are changing everything else you had planned at least for the next eight or nine months.”
He said he still talking to people. He said he has received dozens of phone calls and emails.
