North Carolina 2014 Judicial Race Results

Over the last year, I wrote fairly extensively on some of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals races. The highlighted race amongst those articles was the Supreme Court Justice race, specifically the Chief Justice spot.

That race was between Chief Justice Mark Martin and Judge Ola Lewis. Chief Justice Martin won that race handily with almost 73% of the vote which translated to 1,741,421 votes for Martin to Lewis’s 667,772.

Ervin, Hudson and Beasley all hung on to their seats. The Beasley race was particularly close with only just over 3,200 votes separating them:

SUPREME COURT ASSOC. JUSTICE (Beasley)
NAME ON BALLOT PARTY BALLOT COUNT PERCENT
Cheri Beasley 1,228,397 50.07%
Mike Robinson 1,225,185 49.93%

Gird Your Wallet: Wake County Commissioner Races 2014

The Moral Monday candidates took the Wake County Commissioner races last night.
Gird your wallets, people.

Frankly, I don’t know what Wake voters were thinking. These Moral Monday candidates ran under the banner of ‘More with Four’. Well, the ‘More’ in that title is more taxes. When those tax increases, mass transit boondoggles and bond referendums start to come, don’t complain to me. I warned you.

As for the NC GOP. Shame on you. You neglected these races and it look what happened.

These Moral Monday candidates didn’t have enough experience to full a thimble and instead of promoting the Republicans like you did last cycle, you seemingly blew it off. Now these big government, big spending, social justice crusaders are in control of our taxes.
GOOD GOING.

@NCGOP The lack of push behind the Wake comissioner candidates + lack of calling out biased N&O = Why you lost. Those were LAYUPS. #ncpol

Excuse the typo in the above tweet. Note to self, don’t type angry.

Thom Tillis defeated Kay Hagan.
Renee Ellmers defeated Clay Aiken.
