CLAYTON, N.C. (AP) - A retired physician is adding to the Republicans entering this year’s race for U.S. Senate in North Carolina.

Dr. Edward Kryn (krin) of Clayton said late Tuesday he will seek the GOP nomination. At least seven Republicans have announced they’re running in the May primary. The winner is expected to take on Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan in November.

Kryn was born in Canada and became an American citizen nine years ago. He said he’s in the race because he believes his medical background working in the U.S. and Canada gives him expertise on medical issues unlike the other candidates.

Kryn said he’d seek major changes to the federal health care overhaul if elected. He says the law violates the religious liberties of groups opposed to some of its mandates.
