Dan Bishop; instead of seeking reelection for his House seat, he intends to run for State AG

Dan Bishop, a member of the Freedom Caucus and a Republican representative from North Carolina, announced his plans on a radio show in Charlotte, North Carolina. He revealed

As a lawyer, Bishop believes that returning to his home state presents an opportunity to leverage the influence of the attorney general's office to restore law and order in cities. This decision follows a careful consideration that spanned several months, and Bishop expressed his conviction in the radio interview on WBT radio.

Notably, Bishop narrowly won a special election in 2019 to secure his place in Congress. By returning to the field of law, Bishop aims to contribute his skills and expertise to support Republican attorneys general who have been opposing what they view as federal government overreach. His candidacy specifically aims to fill the seat that will be vacated by Attorney General Josh Stein, a Democrat who himself plans to run for governor in 2024.

Reflecting on his initial intentions upon entering Washington, Bishop shared that he aspired to be a dependable and resolute voice for the concerns of his constituents. With his decision to pursue the role of state attorney general, Bishop believes that he will continue to fight for the same causes but on a different stage. This shift in career path represents a broader commitment to service and advocacy within the legal realm.
