County commissioner Joe Bowser is supporting Donald Hughes's bid for the City Council, but he sounds like he has City Hall ambitions of his own.
Bowser told Bull's Eye this morning he's having his own press conference Friday, and that he will be at the Board of Election office that day — last day to file for the council or mayor's election this fall.
That was all he had to say this morning.
Bowser regained a seat on the Durham County Board of Commissioners last year, after losing a re-election campaign in 2004. Since Bowser resides in the city's Ward 2, if he runs for a council seat he would be a fourth challenger for incumbent Howard Clement, who has held a council seat since 1983.
