North Carolina state senator wins GOP primary in 9th District

Source: The Hill

North Carolina state Sen. Dan Bishop beat out a crowded Republican primary field in the state's 9th congressional district on Tuesday, setting him up to challenge Democrat Dan McCready for the coveted House seat in September.

With 65 percent of precincts reporting, The Associated Press called the race for Bishop, the author of North Carolina’s controversial “bathroom bill,” who carried 47 percent of the vote – well above the 30 percent needed to avoid a runoff election.

Bishop entered the 9th District primary as the state Republican Party’s preferred candidate. But he also faced a field of nine other candidates that included Stony Rushing, a Union County commissioner who scored an early endorsement from Mark Harris, the 2018 Republican nominee for the House seat.

Bishop’s win on Tuesday is a relief for state Republican officials, who had hoped to avoid a GOP runoff in September.
