2010 Elections

Candidates are broken down by party.

Questionnaires: Do look at the NC Family Policy Council questionnaire (located with the judicial candidates) — whatever you think of the NCFPC, they ask very good, pertinent questions of the judicial candidates and I think you will find the answers enlightening.

If you have any candidate information you would like listed, please email the information to gsogreenefields at gmail dot com.

NC State Races

NC Senate District 26

Phil Berger (Republican) faces no primary challenger, nor a Democrat challenger in November.
I did not find a campaign website, nor does he have a “personal” NC Senate website, but you can see his profile on the NC Senate website.

NC Senate District 27

Republican

Jeff Hyde
all I could find was his Facebook page

Democrat

Don Vaughan, husband of Nancy Vaughan, Greensboro City Councilmember
I did not find a campaign website, but did find his “personal” NC Senate website

NC Senate District 28
NC Family Policy Council Questionnaires (view all the candidates’ responses from this page)

Currently, there will only be two names on the ballot in November, one Democrat, and one Republican from the primary in May, but there has been a bit of a dust-up about this race with Bruce Davis claiming he would have filed to run if Katie Dorsett had dropped out sooner than the 11:30 or so she did before the noon filing deadline.  He may attempt to get on the ballot as an independent in which case he will skip the primary step and just be on the ballot in November.
