RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - She lost to Republican Dan Forest in 2012, but Democrat Linda Coleman says she will challenge the Lt. Governor for his seat in 2016.

Coleman, a former state senator and county commissioner, will have to secure the nomination of her party before taking on Forest, who says he will run for re-election.

In a statement, Coleman went after Forest.

"My opponent has eagerly cheered on an ideological agenda that has hurt middle-class families, rendered public education unrecognizable and gutted women's access to health care," the statement said.

Forest is known for conducting a robust grassroots campaign in 2012. He says education is one of his top priorities.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - They're in the minority in the General Assembly, but Democratic state legislators are even more unpopular than the Republicans who have control of both chambers.

Public Policy Polling's February 11 poll comes with this analysis:

"As the General Assembly kicks off another session, it continues to be quite unpopular with North Carolinians. Only 23% of voters say they approve of the job it's doing to 51% who disapprove. It's reached the point though where the minority Democrats (34/48) have even worse favorability numbers than the Republican majority (37/46). The main reason for that is the Republican base is happier with its party leadership (74/12 favorability) than the Democrats (57/23) are with theirs. That big gap is a relatively new development."
