The long line of Republicans and Democrats who won’t be running for reelection in 2016 is getting longer.

A lot of good people going. Look who’s staying:

Perhaps it’s time for some to move on to other things and let new blood in. NC-20’s Rick Catlin announced he wouldn’t be seeking reelection either and New Hanover’s Tammy Covil threw her hat into the ring last month on the Freedom Action Radio Network show.
Covil’s got a big asset going for her with her education background and service on the Common Core review commission. The legislature really needs someone with her kind of experience and her no-nonsense brand of strong conservatism.
Covil already has competition. Hit Daily Haymaker for the scoop. It’s, umm… quite interesting given the turn of events with the Benghazi commission.
Yesterday, Tammy Covil gave official notice to file as a candidate for the NC-20 House seat race.
Press release below:
Tammy Covil will be a wonderful addition to the legislature.
