In Wake County, Gale Adcock holds on over Tom Murry for N.C. House

Posted by on Wed, Nov 5, 2014 at 8:42 AM

As is common in races with Tom Murry, this one was ugly. Mailers with doctored photos, false claims of endorsements by the teacher's union, Murry, a Republican, tried every trick to win his third term to the statehouse.

It worked in 2010 and 2012. This time, he may have failed. If the margin sticks, Gale Adock, a Cary Town Councilwoman, will have defeated Murry, an important gain for Democrats. 

According to unofficial results, Adcock won by 775 votes: 14,939 to 14,164. There's no word yet on whether Murry will request a recount.

There is another tight legislative race, also in Wake County, this one for state senate, District 15: Republican John Alexander slipped by Democrat Tom Bradshaw by 717 votes.
