But as WRAL.com’s Laura Leslie reports, Faison believes that Perdue will step aside and not seek re-election next year. Faison made the statement Tuesday, a day after three Perdue campaign aides were indicted on campaign-related charges.
While Faison suggested that Perdue isn’t acting like she’s running again, her campaign office says differently. Her campaign announced her re-election bid a year ago and there’s been no change in her status.
If Perdue steps aside, that would leave room for Faison – and others — to launch a campaign bid.
