WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Congressman Mike McIntyre is staying clear of endorsing a presidential candidate for the November election.

Rep. McIntyre said Saturday afternoon that his focus is on the congressional race and not other races. McIntryre said his efforts will be on eastern North Carolina and making it better for the people who live and work in the state.

"We've always been steadfast in our work for eastern North Carolina and I'm grateful because we've had Republican and Democratic friends who have supported us because they know my heart is there and it's not about a party agenda or any other person's agenda," McIntyre said. "Our focus is on the congressional race in eastern North Carolina."

Several months ago, McIntyre would not say if he would endorse President Barack Obama for reelection.
