North Carolina 3rd District Republican Runoff Overview and Results

July 9, 2019

A Republican primary runoff is being held in North Carolina's 3rd congressional district on Tuesday, July 9. Polls close at 7:30 PM Eastern Time, with results available here after that.  Reload the page for the latest:

NC-3 has been vacant since the death of GOP Rep. Walter Jones in February. In the party primaries in April, no Republican exceeded 30%, necessitating today's runoff. The top two finishers that advanced are physicians Joan Perry and Greg Murphy, who is also a state representative. Perry has received extensive support from Republican women, hoping to increase their numbers in Congress. All 13 current House GOP women have endorsed Perry.

The winner will face off against the Democratic nominee, former Greenville Mayor Allen Thomas on September 10th. This is a conservative district and the GOP winner today will start out as a large favorite.
