NC Legislature Primaries

List of NC Senate races with a contested primary.

List of NC House races with a constested primary.

More below the fold.

I'm going to stop updating for a while - the races I've got here look to be done, and several sources are calling Morgan/Boylan for the latter. More later.

Here are a few of the races I'm really interested in today.

  • Taylor/Armor in NC-11—Armor won't win, but how much he loses by will be among the tea leaves we'll be reading going in to November.
    8:55 - 4,078/1,257 Taylor
    9:15 - 4,462/1,341 Taylor
    9:25 - 7,170/2,020 Taylor
    9:30 - 8,051/2,121 Taylor
    10:00 - 15,571/3,854 Taylor
    10:10 - 17,665/4,557 Taylor (20%+ for Armor)
  • Rhodes/Tillis in House 98 (Mecklenburg) has generated a lot of talk and pits the most outspoken conservative in the NCGA (and least effective legislator) against a pro-business moderate Republican. The wingnut is the incumbent.
  • Boylan/Morgan in the 52nd (House) will be one of the biggest events this year in the ongoing battle between the doctrinaire (Pope/Cobey) wing of the NCGOP and the "let's try governing" (Morgan) faction.
  • Mintz/Harrell in House 41 pits a faux Democrat against a real Democrat.
    10:00 - 1,539/493Harrell
  • Purgason/Foriest fighting for the chance to be my State Senator—it's touching. Senate 24 (I'm pulling for Foriest).
    9:00 - 146/20 Foriest
    10:00 - 1,691/507 Foriest
  • Senate 31—will we have Nate Tabor to kick around after tonight?
  • Blust/Garwood (in Senate 45) has been a "who's a real conservative" western showdown.
    9:05 - 4,034/3,219 Blust
    9:15 - 4,841/3,922 Blust

Which ones y'all watchin'?


The Puppetmaster wins

Morgan goes down to Pope's handpicked stooge. The New and Improved Puppetshow!

52 to 48.

It's amazing what a little money can do to an election.

Where did you see that?

The SBOE site is still showing zeros.

Doug Jones, Buncombe, House 116

At 10:04 Doug is barely leading 169 to 154. Don't know who Jim Hughes is, but Doug's YD group won a national award recently . . . And he's started up several YD groups all around the 11th. Doug's very well liked so the contest is somewhat of a what's-going-on-behind-the-scenes mystery.


And why is all the text red.

The text for result updates is red

Are you seeing something else red as well?

all the comments

are red

All of thecomment text

Maybe you just didn't close the formatting. Or maybe it is IE

I'm so not seing this,

And I just check the formatting. I'll check again. kisler, are you using IE or firefox?


I'm on Opera


I replaced some WordPad linebreaks with carriage returns in the text window.

that fixed it for me


This time it looks normal

Weird stuff

Thanks, Y'all


Anglico..if it makes you feel better

Blust is a Pope boy...he was the administrator/trustee...whatever of Pope's 527 a few years back. I figure he's near and dear to old Art.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
