WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Incumbent Jonathan Barfield Jr. finished ahead of his Democratic challengers in the race for New Hanover County Commission Tuesday night. He, along with newcomers Robert Zapple and Robert Murray, will move ahead to the general election in November. Stephen Vosnock finished in fourth place, and will not advance to the fall. 

The top three Democrats will take on three Republicans in November. Those six candidates will need to fill three open seats on the commission. At least two of those seats will be newcomers.

Here’s how the Democratic results came in: 

New Hanover Co. Commission – Democrat43 of 43 precincts reporting (100%)

  Jonathan Barfield Jr. [I] 12,135 35% (X)
  Robert Zapple 10,182 29% (X)
  Robert C. Murray 7,597 22% (X)
  Stephen M. Vosnock 5,232 15%

I hope New Hanover County does better than this in the general election.
