NEW ORLEANS — As House Republicans tried to wrap up their business in the weeks before Election Day, the race between Democrat Carol Loomis and Republican Tom Price continued to heat up.
The latest development in the saga came when Loomas campaign announced on Tuesday that it would move to Charlotte in 2019.
The move would mean Loomins victory in November, but would likely be overshadowed by the election of President Donald Trump.
Loomis campaign spokesman Eric Dutton told the Associated Press that Loominis campaign is “not looking to run for a House seat in 2020,” and said the campaign will focus on helping the state regain its economic strength.
The Democratic candidate has been in office since 2009 and has been governor since 2018.
Republicans in the General Assembly have been pushing for months to make Charlotte the next U.S. capitol and it is expected that House Republicans will likely support that plan.
