From the Charlotte Observer:
Democrat Anthony Foxx built an early lead over Republican John Lassiter on Tuesday night in the race to replace Pat McCrory as mayor of Charlotte.
The Mecklenburg County Board of Elections released results from the early voting period, which ended last weekend, and it showed Foxx receiving 59.6 percent of the 9,145 votes cast. Lassiter had 40.1 percent of the vote.
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.
