Former state Treasurer Richard Moore said he will take “a close look” at seeking the Democratic nomination for governor.
“I am not ruling anything out,” Moore said. “The Democratic Party faces a real challenge to find the right candidate who can bring together a strong challenge to Republicans this fall. I know how to present our arguments in a forceful and experienced way. We will have to see if I am the right messenger at this point in time.”
Moore ran for governor in 2008, losing in the Democratic primary to then Lt. Gov. Bev Perdue. He is a former state legislator and former secretary of crime control and public safety. He is currently in business.
