NC House candidates move forward to November election


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The North Carolina House of Representatives field of legislative hopefuls is now full.

Three candidates advanced Tuesday night to November's general election through primary runoff victories.

Republicans Mattie Lawson and Dana Bumgardner and Democrat Nathan Baskerville won their respective districts completing the full slate of candidates.

Lawson beat Arthur Williams for the Republican nomination in the state's 6th House District. Lawson will face Democrat Paul Tine in the fall.

Democrat Baskerville beat Jim Crawford in the state's 32nd House District. It was one of the only non-Republican contests of the day. Baskerville will face Republican Scott Bynum in the general election.

Republican Bumgardner advanced past Wil Neumann in the state's 109th House District. Bumgardner will face Democrat Melba Reese in November.
