Chowan commissioner to run for Secretary of State

By on January 8, 2012

A Chowan County commissioner has announced he will run for statewide office this spring.

The Chowan Herald reports board chairman Eddy Goodwin has announced he will run for the Republican nomination for Secretary of State.

Republican Michael Beitler of Greensboro has also said he wants the G.O.P. nod to challenge Democratic incumbent Elaine Marshall in November.


Goodwin will try to become the first person from the northeast to hold statewide office since Thad Eure of Winton was Secretary of State from 1936 to 1989.
