New Hanover County voters will decide in November whether to approve a $160 million school bond. 

The GOP contest for North Carolina’s 7th Congressional District was a three-candidate game – but the real battle played out between front-runners David Rouzer and Woody White.  Rouzer scooped up victories in ten of the twelve counties.   

On the Democratic side of the ticket, Jonathan Barfield captured the nomination but with just six counties. 

After a long battle in the primaries, the Seventh Congressional District—that stretching from Wilmington to the Raleigh suburbs--is down to one Republican contender for the U.S. House seat being vacated by Democrat Mike McIntyre. Former state senator David Rouzer of Johnston County won more than fifty-three percent of the vote last night, beating Woody White, chairman of the New Hanover County Commission, and Chris Andrade, a Fayetteville military veteran.

Throughout recent legal battles concerning New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger’s fitness for public office, mental health has been a central topic. At a news conference last week, Commission Chairman Woody White said the commission had heard nothing from Berger regarding whether he needed or had received mental health counseling. White cited Berger’s incoherent emails, conspiracy fixations and erratic behavior as grave concerns that responsible leaders could not ignore.
