Primary Shakeup In NC's 9th Congressional District

Polls have opened in North Carolina as voters choose their parties' nominees for dozens of legislative and congressman primary races.

Democratic voters in the 13th Congressional District chose their nominee from the more establishment wing of the party, selecting Kathy Manning by a wide margin to face freshman U.S. Rep. Ted Budd, a Republican from Advance, in the November 6 general election.

Among the Republican incumbents facing the most serious challenges in Tuesday's voting are be Reps.

The Rev. Mark Harris, a Winston-Salem native, narrowly defeated Pittenger in the 9th District GOP primary, according to complete, unofficial results - a reversal of their 2016 primary that Pittenger won by only 134 votes.

District 9 includes southern Mecklenburg County, all of Union, Anson, Richmond, Scotland and Robeson counties along with large amounts of Cumberland and Bladen counties. Phil Law, one of Jones' 2016 rivals, is also in the race. Jones will run unopposed this fall for what is expected to be his final term.

Manning now faces incumbent Rep.

Democrat David Price easily won his primary and will likely return to Congress from the 4th district.

Other GOP winners were Rep. Virginia Foxx of Banner Elk in the 5th District in northwestern North Carolina and Rep. George Holding of Raleigh in the 2nd District, which covers portions of Raleigh and surrounding suburbs, stretching to the northeast and southwest. Pairs of Republican senators were drawn into the same district, meaning two incumbents won't advance.

Clarence Goins Jr. finished a distant third in a race that focused on which candidate was best aligned with President Donald Trump and traditional Republican principles, as well as who had the strongest Christian conservative credentials.

About 4 percent of the state's almost 7 million registered voters had cast ballots before Tuesday's voting through either early in-person or traditional absentee voting. Some voters had no primaries in which to make a choice because there were no statewide races on the ballot.
