RALEIGH, North Carolina: Harold Brubaker (R) resigned from the North Carolina House of Representatives last week, ending his re-election bid for the 2012 elections as well.[1]

Brubaker, who had served in the House since 1977, said that he wanted to retire when he felt the GOP was ready to govern effectively.[2]

Republican leaders in District 78 will appoint a replacement candidate to face Democrat Joel McClosky (D) in the general election on November 6, 2012.
