Good morning! It's Christine Nelson on this Wednesday, May 7. What a busy primary election night! We're on your side giving you the most thorough look at who won and who will be hanging up their campaign for now.
All eyes on Hagan-Tillis
As people expected, Thom Tillis punched his ticket to November general election. He beat out his fellow GOP opponents to win the Republican primary. He will face incumbent Senator Kay Hagan. Both campaigns are reacting to the showdown. We'll hear what they have to say this morning.
Another high-profile race we're reporting on this morning is the one that determines who will replace Mel Watt. One candidate won both the special election AND the primary. Here's a hint, it's not any of the candidates from Mecklenburg County!
