Etheridge not yet decided
U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge plans to make a decision on whether to enter next year's Senate race later this week, according to a spokesman.

The Lillington Democrat had hoped to already have already made a decision, but Rob Christensen reports that he was delayed by the weekend vote on the health care legislation and by the Veterans Day activities.

He is being courted by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which would like for him to challenge Republican Sen. Richard Burr next year. The long delay in Etheridge's decision apparently was a factor in former state Sen. Cal Cunningham's announcement Monday that he would not be a Senate candidate.

Cunningham apparently thought he would get the backing of the Senatorial Committee if Etheridge decided not to run.
