North Carolina's 9th District goes blue

North Carolina's 9th District goes blue

An additional challenge to attracting voter interest was that the legislature canceled this year's primaries for local trial and state appeals court races.

The district, which Trump won by 12 percentage points in 2016, stretches through the central part of North Carolina's southern border. McFadden earned 51 percent of the primary votes.

Though turnout was typically low, North Carolina's primary election wasn't without some notable fireworks last night.

Voters can find out where to vote and their registration status on the state board of elections' website.

Just after noon at Maggie Valley's Ivy Hill precinct, 112 people had voted in person after 167 others had already submitted absentee ballots.

The campaign focused on backing from evangelical Christians and who would best support President Donald Trump, who didn't endorse either candidate.

In another closely watched congressional race, Democrat Linda Coleman, a former state representative and two-time candidate for lieutenant governor, won a three-way primary. The race, according to the paper, was between a "straight shooter" insurgent candidate and an incumbent who had "repeatedly embarrassed his district" with gaffes.

The three-term incumbent is the first congressman to lose this year. And eight of the 13 members of the congressional delegation have primaries. Libertarian Tom Bailey also will be in the fall election.

Harris led Pittenger by 48.5 percent to 46.2 percent with all precincts reporting when the Associated Press called the race shortly after 10:30 p.m. EST. Unaffiliated voters - who can choose to vote in either the Democratic or GOP primaries - and Republicans are voting slightly less than their registration proportions. That suggests Democratic enthusiasm in November.

It won't be smooth sailing to Congress for Harris, as he faces a strong Democratic challenger: Dan McCready, a veteran and small-business owner.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Rep. Robert Pittenger lost his Republican primary to a Southern Baptist pastor who flipped the results of their 2016 primary. Far more Democratic voters than Republicans turned out in District 9, even though it's a Republican-leaning district and had a more competitive Republican primary than Democratic one.
