WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The three winners in Tuesday’s race for the New Hanover County Board of Education all have two things in common: They are all women, and they are all Republicans.

Lisa Estep, Tammy Covil and incumbent Jeannette Nichols finished in the top three in the voting ahead of three Democrats.

The results mean incumbent Elizabeth Redenbaugh lost her seat. Redenbaugh was elected as a Republican four years ago. She switched to the Democratic Party last year she often found herself on the other side of issues from fellow Republicans.
