Primary Runoff Today
Special Report - June 22, 2010
Today is an important day for a number of candidates for public office across North Carolina as voters head to the polls to vote in runoff primary elections. There are runoffs in the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate to see who will face Sen. Richard Burr, while Republicans have runoffs in the races for three congressional seats.
Cal Cunningham and Elaine Marshall will vie for the Democrat nomination for the U.S. Senate seat. In the 8th Congressional District, Republicans Harold Johnson and Tim D'Annunzio are battling to see who will face incumbent Rep. Larry Kissell. Republicans Scott Cumbie and Greg Dority square off in the 12th District to see who will challenge Rep. Mel Watt. In the 13th District, Rep. Brad Miller will face the winner of the contest between Republicans Bill Randall and Bernie Reeves. The only state legislative race with a runoff features two Democrats, Eric Mansfield and Lula Crenshaw in Senate District 21. The winner will face Republican Wade Fowler in the November 2 General Election.
For those voters who did not already vote through absentee ballot or one-stop early voting, and are undecided on which candidates to vote for, the North Carolina Family Policy Council has produced the online 2010 Primary Election Voter Guide. The nonpartisan and impartial guide was produced by sending questionnaires to 330 candidates for public offices in districts/races with primary election opposition. Over 52 percent of the candidates responded. The State Board of Elections offers sample ballots for each voting district so that voters can be prepared at the polls. To access the sample ballot, click here and follow the directions on the site.
