Myrick's son eyes Lt. Governor's seat

Sue Myrick's son, Dan Forest, is campaigning to be North Carolina's next lieutenant governor, reports Jim Morrill of The Charlotte Observer.

Morrill reports that although the race has stayed far below the radar, Forrest has been speaking to GOP groups around the state.

Morrill writes: "Forest, 43, is the son of Myrick and her first husband, the late Jim Forest. He attended East Mecklenburg High School before transferring to a school in Columbia. He practiced architecture for 23 years before stepping down in late 2009 to start a political advocacy group. He left in March to start his campaign."

Forest was a student at UNC Charlotte when his mother was elected mayor of Charlotte. He told Morrill that  his mother, a member of Congress since 1995, may campaign with him before it's over.

"I think she will be very willing to once the time comes," he said. "She'll be in campaign mode, too."
