“I just wanted to thank each and every one of you for your support, dedication, and votes,” said McCullough-Testa, who lives in Southern Shores. “Although it looks like my campaign will not be successful, we worked hard, made so many new connections, and built a foundation for the future. My love, respect, and total sincere gratitude goes out to everyone this evening.

“We just don’t have the numbers in Dare County to win in this hyper-partisan environment. More to come tomorrow…”
