RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina’s U.S. Sen. Richard Burr wants to talk about national security issues to a home-state crowd from his post as the Senate’s new Intelligence Committee chairman.
Burr wraps up a week of public events Thursday with a luncheon speech inside a downtown Raleigh skyscraper.
Burr is in his second Senate term after 10 years in the U.S. House and is seeking re-election next year. The Winston-Salem Republican rose to lead the Intelligence Committee’s leader after the GOP majority took over the Senate following last year’s elections.
