Democratic state treasurer won't seek higher office in 2012

Democratic State Treasurer Janet Cowell is removing her name from a list of possible candidates for governor after Gov. Bev Perdue's impromptu exit today.

In a statement to Dome, Cowell says: "I intend to seek re-election as state treasurer. In a year with so many unknowns, the most valuable role I can play is ensuring the stability of our state's finances and continuing the important work of the office."

So with Attorney General Roy Cooper and Secretary of State Elaine Marshall also not seeking the state's top post, it appears at this point that Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton is the only statewide elected official with an eye toward the governor's mansion.
