The Winston-Salem Journal reports that Hillary Clinton was the exception to the rule in North Carolina:
Eleven women were on the ballot last week running in primaries for statewide elective office. Seven of them won their races by beating male opponents. An eighth, Winston-Salem's Mary Fant Donnan, was the top vote-getter in the Democratic primary for commissioner of labor, and may face a runoff.

GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
