BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Rex Gore will have some more competition in May, as New Hanover County's assistant district attorney plans to challenge the incumbent.
New Hanover County assistant district attorney Jon David (R) announced Wednesday, that he will run for district attorney in District 13.
The two went head-to-head for the position in 2006, Gore coming out on top. He's held the job since 1991, responsible for prosecuting all criminal cases in Bladen, Brunswick and Columbus Counties.
Butch Pope (D) also filed for the DA position earlier this week in Columbus County.
