N.C. Rep. John Sauls, who represents Lee and Harnett counties in the North Carolina General Assembly, and Lee County Register of Deeds Pam Britt both filed for re-election on Monday.
Sauls, a Republican, served two terms in the state House back in the mid-2000s; he returned in 2016 and won re-election in 2018. His campaign Facebook page didn’t appear as of Tuesday morning to have any message about his decision to seek a fifth term.
Britt, a Democrat, was appointed in 2014 after the resignation of former Register of Deeds Mollie McInnis, and first elected in her own right in 2016.
Four Democrats, including two newcomers and two incumbents, filed for seats on the Lee County Board of Education on Monday as well.
Filing for the 2020 election continues through Dec. 20 at noon.
