Last night, the results for our campaign fell short of victory (46%-54%). Together, we worked long and hard, but it was not enough to prevail in this very tough district.
I congratulate Representative Paul Stam on his victory, and wish him well in his efforts to serve our local communities in our North Carolina General Assembly over the next 2 years.
I am proud of the tremendous progress we made. Our campaign added to many up ticket Democratic victories, including a Democratic majority on our Wake County Board of Commissioners, many Council of State races, the Governorship, US Senate, and of course the close Presidential Electoral vote.
