North Carolina state Rep. Tricia Cotham is engaged to Jerry Meek, the state Democratic Party chair. Clearly, she is the busier of the two:
Meek, of Fayetteville, popped the question Friday night at a cabin in Bryson City, but only after clearing the schedule with Cotham's campaign manager, reports Jim Morrill of The Charlotte Observer.
Cotham, 29, is the state's youngest legislator. Meek, 37, is the nation's youngest party chairman.
Cotham won disgraced former Speaker Jim Black's seat in a special election.
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.
