Here are the NC primary races headed to runoff elections

CHARLOTTE — Four North Carolina primary races are headed to runoff elections. None of the four races ended Tuesday with a candidate garnering at least 30% of the vote, which is why they’re headed to runoffs.

Republicans or unaffiliated voters who voted Republican are eligible to vote in the elections, which will be held on May 14.

Below is an overview of the races:

District 6

The 6th Congressional District stretches from Cabarrus County to Guilford County. It includes the part of Cabarrus that is west of Interstate 85 North. Addison McDowell will face Mark Walker in the second primary.

McDowell is a former lobbyist for Blue Cross Blue Shield. The endorsement by Trump sent shockwaves through the race because Trump backed him before he announced he was running. McDowell also landed the endorsement over other major candidates.

Walker, a former Baptist pastor, rode the Tea Party wave to three terms in Congress. In the past couple days, Walker has been highlighting an artificial intelligence-generated deepfake advertisement that was designed to misrepresent him to voters.

Lieutenant Governor

In the Republican race for North Carolina lieutenant governor, Hal Weatherman will face Forsyth County District Attorney Jim O’Neill.

Weatherman served as chief of staff for former North Carolina Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest. He told Channel 9 that his experience in North Carolina sets him apart from his opponent.

O’Neill ran for the office of attorney general back in 2020 and narrowly lost to Josh Stein.

State auditor

Jack Clark will face Dave Boliek in the race for state auditor. Clark is a research assistant in the General Assembly and said his experience, combined with his time spent as an auditor, qualifies him for the position.

Boliek is on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Board of Trustees as the budget chair.

District 13

Kelly Daughtry and Brad Knott are facing each other in a runoff for the Republican nomination in the redrawn 13th District.

According to WTVD, Daughtry is the daughter of Leo Daughtry, a longtime figure in the North Carolina House and Senate who now sits on the UNC Board of Governors.

Knott is a prosecutor and this is his first run for office, WTVD reports. He believes his years working with law enforcement have equipped him to address crime and immigration issues.
