Jeff Jackson Considering a Run for Burr's US Senate Seat in 2022


NC Senate Democrat Jeff Jackson just announced in an email that he and his family are considering the potential for his running for the US Senate in 2022.

He'll be a strong candidate. He'll be able to raise the money. He'll have enthusiastic support in Watauga County.

He was just reelected to the NC Senate from a district in Mecklenburg County and has been something of a rising Democratic star in the General Assembly. Here's part of the email he sent:

So here’s what I’m going to do:

Marisa and I will talk about it with our kids over the holiday.

Family considerations come first - politics is second.

We have three kids - Haden (12), Owen (5), and Avery (2) - so meeting my obligation to them as a dad has to come first.

(Avery is also in the middle of potty training, and folks I can assure you that no one in this family is running for U.S. Senate until that essential task is complete.)

Marisa and I genuinely appreciate all of the support we’ve received in the last few weeks. We’ll update you after our family talks it over.
