District Attorney Rex Gore said he loves the job he has been going to for the past 20 years and wants the voters to give him four more.
Gore is seeking the Democratic nomination to run for district attorney for the 13th prosecutorial district for a sixth term.
He is being challenged in the Democratic Primary by Butch Pope, a Whiteville attorney.
“My motivation is as a defense lawyer for 26 years, I have been studying the prosecution. After playing defense for 26 years, you learn a lot about offense,” Pope said.
