North Carolina Election Results

Wayne Howard
Staff Writer

North Carolina was like most of the other Super Tuesday states--Joe Biden led the Democratic Presidential Primary. In North Carolina, Biden got 43% of the votes, Bernie Sanders was second with 24% and Mike Bloomberg third with just under 13%.

With his Super Tuesday wins, Biden now has 595 of the 1991 delegates needed for the Democratic nomination at the party's convention in Milwaukee in July. Sanders has 528. In an interview with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, Sen. Bernie Sanders said if former Vice President Joe Biden had a plurality of delegates entering the convention he should be the Democratic party's presidential nominee. President Trump is certain to be the GOP nominee when the Republicans hold their convention in Charlotte in August.

The North Carolina Governor's race will be Roy Cooper vs Dan Forest. The two were overwhelming choices of voters on Tuesday. Thom Tillis will have Cal Cunningham as his opponent for the US Senate in November. Cunningham got 57% of the vote Tuesday while Erica Smith got just under 35%.

David Wilson Brown of McAdenville won the Democratic Primary for the 5th District Congressional seat currently held by Republican Virginia Foxx. Brown ran against Patrick McHenry two years ago, but Gaston and Cleveland counties were moved to the 5th District this year. McHenry won the GOP Primary for his 10th District seat and faces no opposition in November.

Yvonne Holley led the Democratic Primary for Lt. Governor with 26.57% of the vote. Terry Van Duyn was second with 20.44%. Van Duyn could call for a runoff. Mark Robinson got 32% in the GOP Lt. Gov. race, so he won't face a runoff.

For Secretary of State, Republicans chose E.C. Sykes with 42% of the vote. Gaston County Commissioner Chad Brown followed with 38%. Democrat Elaine Marshall was unopposed in the Primary.

For State Treasurer, Democrats chose Ronnie Chatterji, who had 35.7% of the votes, Dimple Ajmera was second with 33.9%. Chatterji will run against incumbent Republican Treasurer Dale Folwell in the General Election. 

Jen Mangrum won the Democratic Primary for Supt. of Public Instruction with 33% of the votes, followed by Keith Sutton with 26% and Constance (Lav) Johnson with 21%. Incumbent Republican Mark Johnson ran for Lt. Gov. so the office was up for grabs. Catherine Truitt won the Republican Primary with 56%.

Incumbent Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry from Catawba County decided to retire from that position. Josh Dobson got 40% of the votes in the GOP Primary, defeating Chuck Stanley who got 37% and Pearl Burris Floyd from Gastonia, who had 21%.

Dobson will face Democrat Jessica Holmes, who was unopposed in the Democratic Primary, in November.

For State Auditor, incumbent Democrat Beth Wood got 77% of the votes. She'll face Republican Anthony Wayne (Tony) Street, who won with 56%.

Mike Causey was challenged by Ronald Pierce for Insurance Commissioner. Causey won with 64% of the vote and will face former Commissioner Democrat Wayne Goodwin in November.

For Commissioner of Agriculture, Jenna Wadsworth won the Democratic Primary with 53% and will face incumbent Republican Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler in the General Election.
