Randall, 42, a retired Navy meteorologist from Wake Forest, plans to announce his candidacy July 1, reports Rob Christensen.
“I believe the current representative is out of touch,” Randall said. “With his voting record he does not represent the average constituent in the district along with the so-called stimulus plan.”
Randall moved to North Carolina last fall and became involved as a volunteer in the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
He became known in GOP circles across the state when he campaigned for party chairman.
Miller, a four-term Democrat, has never had a close race in the Democratic-leaning 13th District, which starts in Raleigh and arcs northward along the Virginia border before ending in Greensboro.
