NC: GOP Runoffs to Determine Nominees for Congress, Lieutenant Governor and Auditor

Source: US News & World Report

“What is expected to be a very small group of North Carolina voters will decide which Republicans will serve as the party’s nominees for a congressional district seat and for the statewide positions of lieutenant governor and auditor. One of Tuesday’s GOP primary runoffs is for the 13th Congressional District, though one of the candidates who will appear on the ballot is no longer actively running. Kelly Daughtry, who finished first in the March 5 primary, announced last week that she was suspending her campaign and supporting Brad Knott, a former federal prosecutor from Raleigh who obtained the endorsement of former President and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Runoffs were called for by the second-place finisher in each of the March primaries after the leading vote-getter failed to receive more than 30% of the vote. There are also two other local elections next week.” (05/09/24)
