But he's getting active again, and in an announcement on NC Conservative, he sez he's getting ready to maybe challenge Virginia Foxx in a primary in 2012. Here's his announcement in toto:
My name is Richard Carter and I am very proud and excited about this announcement. Many already know I am considering running to be the 2012 Republican candidate for North Carolina's 5th district seat in the United States House of Representatives. With this announcement I make official the exploration of my candidacy for the 5th district seat currently held by Representative Virginia Foxx.
Please note that should my candidacy become official I will update everyone with my candidate website. Until that time, I will be responding personally so if it takes me a day or two getting back to you, please let me apologize in advance for the delay. And if you know someone you want to include in the loop please feel free to share my email address with them. I greatly anticipate introducing myself to you all and earning your trust, and possibly your vote, as we move towards the 2012 election.
Richard V Carter Jr
US House 2012
I am currently working on my first newsletter. I have some suggestions from those I have already spoken with about what they would like me to do in Washington. If any of you feel inclined to write me, please let me know what you would want from me in Washington. I am interested in any ideas, suggestions, or requests as these will establish what I will do if elected.
Yessir! Sometimes politics is just so wonderfully ... random.
