RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - It looks like North Carolina Libertarians will have a U.S. Senate primary this year, too.

Two Libertarian candidates filed Wednesday for the party’s nomination — Sean Haugh of Durham and Tim D'Annunzio of Raeford. Their candidacies bring to 11 the number of people running so far for Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan’s seat, including Hagan herself. The Democrats and Republicans also will have May primaries.

D'Annunzio ran for Congress in 2010 and 2012 as a Republican but has switched his affiliation. He won the 4th District GOP primary in 2012 but later lost to Democratic incumbent David Price. D’Annnuzio lost in an 8th District Republican primary runoff in 2010.

Haugh ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in 2002 and is a former state Libertarian Party executive director.
