In a bizarre election-night turn, Stan Morse won the Democratic primary for the state House District 40 even though he endorsed his opponent and spent Tuesday campaigning for him.
A recruiter and consultant to the printing industry, he took 54 percent of the vote to Sam Hart Brewer's 46 percent. On Monday, Morse submitted a concession speech and stood outside a Raleigh polling place Tuesday encouraging voters to pick Brewer.
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.
