Former state Sen. David Rouzer will make another run for North Carolina’s 7th District, according to the Charlotte News Observer.
If Rouzer wins the GOP nomination, he will face a rematch against Rep. Mike McIntyre, D-N.C., in 2014.
McIntyre edged out Rouzer by 654 votes, the closest margin of any House race in the 2012 cycle. The ballot counting went past Election Day. It was the last congressional race to be called, in late November.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee named McIntyre to its “Frontline” incumbent retention program earlier this month.
