Election board moves NC Senate candidate protest forward
A closely divided county elections board in North Carolina has determined there’s substantial evidence that a state Senate candidate doesn’t reside in the district for the seat she’s running for this fall. The Currituck County Board of Elections voted Tuesday to forward its findings from a hearing involving the candidacy of Democratic candidate Valerie Jordan to the State Board of Elections for a final decision. Republican candidate Bobby Hanig filed the protest last week. Hanig alleges that Jordan doesn't reside in the 3rd Senate District. Jordan says she's confident the state board will rightly determine she lives in the district.
