Former Sen. Barringer to run for North Carolina high court

National News

Candidates for the North Carolina Supreme Court continue to grow with two or three seats on the ballot next year due to Chief Justice Mark Martin's impending resignation.

Former state Sen. Tamara Barringer of Cary told supporters Tuesday she would seek a court spot in 2020. The attorney and university professor served in the legislature for over six years before losing in November.

Barringer says she'll seek an associate justice's seat. It's unclear if one or two will be open. It depends on whether Gov. Roy Cooper elevates someone already on the court when he names a successor to Martin, who leaves Feb. 28.

Court of Appeals Judges Lucy Inman and Phil Berger Jr. have put out their names to run for the state's highest court in the past week.
