Before you get so excited that you have “an accident,” the guy who’s running for Burr’s U.S. Senate seat isn’t that Ken Lewis. No, even though my news-loving heart jumped up and down when I read the news, the Bank of America CEO won’t be throwing his hat into the political ring, as far as we know. The candidate is Kenneth Lewis, a Harvard-educated Durham lawyer in Durham and fundraiser for Barack Obama last year. His announcement means he’s getting an early start on the race, but then so again is Burr, who is worried about keeping his job. If Attorney General Roy Cooper joins the race, Lewis’ days in the senate race may be short.
