The News and Observer is reporting that NC State Congressman Bob Etheridge will not challenge Senator Burr in 2010.  Bob Etheridge was seen by the Democrats as a strong potential candidate so this is a setback for them.  There are several Democrat candidates who have announced a run but all are trailing Burr in recent polls.  See North Carolina Senate 201o Poll here http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/
