RALEIGH, NC (AP) - A three-time candidate for statewide office in North Carolina has decided to add his name to the list of candidates seeking Democrat Kay Hagan's U.S. Senate seat this year.

Lexington attorney Jim Snyder turned in his candidacy papers Tuesday for the Republican nomination, bringing the number of GOP members officially in the race to five. At least two other Republicans are expected to file before Friday's deadline.

Snyder served briefly in the legislature in the early 1970s and ran for U.S. Senate in 2002, losing in the primary to eventual general election victor Elizabeth Dole. The social conservative won the GOP primary for lieutenant governor in 2004 but ultimately lost to Democrat Beverly Perdue. He ran for the same job in 2008 but finished second in the primary.
