PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - It looks like United States Senator Kay Hagan is getting a challenge within her own party this year.

Will Stewart from Pender County has indicated he will challenge Hagan for the Democratic nomination for United States Senate.

Stewart's campaign website states that he opened a computer repair business in Pender County in 2008. His biography mentions that he believes people from North Carolina are tired of the "status quo."

The website states that "(Stewart) will speak boldly and truthfully, to the establishment, on behalf of all of the American people. If North Carolina needs someone to oppose big government, lobbyists, and special interest groups they can count on Will to take that stand."

Hagan announced yesterday that she raised more than $2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 for her re-election bid. Several Republicans have already lined up to run for Senate this year as well.
