Elaine Marshall's legislative liaison is considering a run for Senate.
Robert Wilson, who currently works for the Democratic secretary of state, told the Insider on Tuesday that he might run for the nomination to face U.S. Sen. Richard Burr.
Wilson is a 28-year veteran of state government who has also worked for the Department of Correction and the state community college system.
"If I get in it, I will be in it to win it," he said.
As of November, he made $85,005 as legislative affairs program manager for Marshall.
Marshall, the longest-serving member of the Council of State, ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic nomination in 2002.
