CARY -- Greg Brannons Monday started with two pelvic surgeries at WakeMed and ended at a tea party event in Moore County for his U.S Senate campaign.
In between, the 53-year-old obstetrician saw 46 patients at his Cary office.
Brannon has no political experience. He recently lost a civil lawsuit. And hes facing seven other candidates, including state House Speaker Thom Tillis, whose supporters have deep pockets, in the Republican primary.
But he thinks he has the managerial experience and legal knowledge needed to win the primary and ultimately unseat incumbent Democrat Kay Hagan.
Hes run his OB/GYN practice for 21 years, served as medical director for a local pregnancy clinic for eight years and worked at a weight-loss clinic for two years all while raising seven children, three of whom are adopted.
The N.C. Medical Board website reports no malpractice complaints against Brannon, who says hes delivered more than 9,000 babies and helped more than 20,000 patients.
Hes continued delivering babies 250 at last count since the campaign started and says hell keep his practice if elected.
Friends and colleagues say they were not surprised he decided to run; nor will they be surprised if he wins.
They describe him as level-headed and ambitious someone who has taken risks to help friends and guided them through personal and financial turmoil.
He knows where hes going, and he doesnt let anything get in the way, said Mike Green, a friend since his high school days in La Mirada, Calif.
Green said when the two met, Brannon already knew he wanted to be a doctor.

There's a lefthanded compliment if I've ever heard one. "The candidate is reported to not currently be beating his wife, though she was unavailable for comment." Sheesh.
If the Snooze and Disturber doesn't like him, and is running pieces like this ... that probably bodes well for him.
We went to a meeting to hear him speak at Sunday. Brilliant man who readily can back his opinions with quotes from Constitution, Federalist Papers and the Bible. Has my vote.
There are some good choices in NC - for a change. #1 in my book is to get a good candidate.....#1a is to get rid of the current embarrassment who's representing us.
