RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Sen. Mickey Michaux is resigning from the North Carolina Senate, effective March 31, according to a resignation letter sent Friday to Senate leader Phil Berger.

Michaux had been appointed in January to replace Sen. Floyd McKissick after his resignation from the 20th district, which is Durham County.

“It has been a distinct pleasure for me to have served in this body for a short time, a service that I will long remember,” Michaux, 89, said in the letter.
