Trump, Biden easily win party primaries in North Carolina

President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden both easily won Tuesday’s North Carolina primary elections in Dare, Currituck and across all of North Carolina.

Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper of North Carolina also won his party’s primary Tuesday and will face Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Forest in the November general election.

Dare County Board of Commissioners District 3 incumbent Steve House, a Republican, easily won his primary against Paul Wright in the only local contest on the ballot.

In Currituck County, three GOP members of the Board of Commissioners faced primary challenges, and all three — Mary (Kitty) Etheridge, Selina S. Jarvis and Paul Beaumont — won their races, though not by large margins.

Denise Hall, Currituck’s Register of Deeds, easily won a contest against challenger Christy McCord.

North Carolina’s U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis also won the Republican Senate primary.
