RALEIGH - Former state legislator and Wake County Commissioner, Linda Coleman, is running for lieutenant governor.

"My focus will be clearly directed at improving our public schools, strengthening our workforce training programs in our community colleges and making critical investments in our research universities," Coleman, a Democrat, said in a statement.

Currently Coleman, 62, works is Personnel Director for the State of North Carolina.
She served three terms in the state House and is a former chairman of the Wake County Board of Commissioners. In her announcement, she highlighted her work on raising the state's minimum wage and advocating for state employees.

She is the first announced Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor after current officeholder, Walter Dalton, decided to run for governor. Three Republicans are vying for their party's nomination.
