RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Tony Tata's resignation as Secretary of North Carolina's Transportation Department has political types buzzing about a possible run for U.S. Congress.

Tata hasn't ended the speculation, telling the Triangle Business Journal this week that "I'm evaluating all of that right now." He added: "I have always said I would go where duty calls. If that takes me to public office, so be it. If that takes me to volunteering, as I have done for veterans' causes, so be it."

In June, National Journal ran a story about Tata possibly considering a primary challenge to 3rd District Congessman Walter Jones. Tata is considered a good fit for that heavily-military district because of his U.S. Army career. Tata retired as a Brigadier General.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Election cash is rolling in to 4th District Congressman David Price. The Salisbury Post reports the Democratic Congressman has $2.35 million cash on hand, having garnered nearly $275,000 of it in the second quarter of 2015.

Price's political intentions have been the subject of speculation by political pundits. No word yet on whether he intends to run for another term in the heavily Democratic district that includes Chapel Hill and Carrboro, two of the most progressive areas of the state.

Should he retire, Price could help fund other Democrats' runs for office.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will add to her presidential campaign coffers Wednesday when she lands in Raleigh for a fundraiser.

The invitation suggests a $2,700 donation -- the maximum allowed for an individual to donate to a campaign in the primary cycle.

Clinton is expected to clinch the Democratic Party's nomination for president, but she's facing opposition from several fellow Democrats.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-described socialist, has drawn thousands to his events. Other candidates include two former governors: Martin O'Malley of Maryland and Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island.

Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb is also in the race.
