Davis officially nominated to fill NC House seat


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A candidate for the North Carolina House has received the title "representative" before the fall election.

New Hanover County Commissioner Ted Davis Jr. has been appointed to the House by Gov. Bev Perdue to succeed Rep. Danny McComas, who resigned earlier this month to become the next chairman of the State Ports Authority. The formal appointment late last week followed Davis' nomination by New Hanover County Republicans to fill the final three months of McComas' term. The Legislature is not scheduled to meet again until early next year.

McComas already was not seeking re-election. He said months ago he was retiring after 18 years in the Legislature. Davis won the May GOP primary and will face Democrat Emilie Swearingen in November for a two-year House term.

Barfield, Chris and corruption-DEFEAT BARFIELD

They lie like hell even when there is evidence to the contrary. Corruption runs high in NC- but NHC takes the cake because we have a DA in the tank with the local politicos. We will turn over our facts to national media and 3rd parties- and hope that for the good of the folks here they follow up. The local powers stink--- that is a fact and their cover ups and lies will evntually blow up in their fsces.
To re-elect a barfield is like re-electing a Carter or edwards- no competence and no ethics- we can do better!
