2024 elections: Who will run in North Carolina's 10th congressional district how that Republican Patrick McHenry is not running for re-election?

The gerrymandered 10th North Carolina includes all of Cleveland, Gaston, Lincoln, Polk, and Rutherford counties, and part of Catawba, Iredell, and Buncombe counties. According to the Cook Partisan Voting Index, it is the most Republican district in the state.  Trump received 69.2% of the vote in 2020.

Politico, 12/5/2023
McHenry’s announcement is a reversal from late October, when the North Carolina Republican said he would run for reelection in the state’s newly drawn 10th Congressional District. The area is a safe GOP stronghold — it broke for former President Trump by nearly 40 percentage points in 2020.  
McHenry, 48, did not say why he flipped on his plans, but he is currently serving his third — and what could have been his final — term as Financial Services Committee chairman. GOP conference rules only allow lawmakers to serve three conservative terms as top Republican on the committee. If vying for a third stretch as chair, lawmakers must receive a waiver for the top job.
