Second Primary -Election Results as of 10PM

It looks like Dan Forest will be the Republican candidate for Lt Governor, Mike Causey for Insurance Commissioner, John Tedesco for Superintendent of Public Instruction and Ed Goodwin for Secretary of State. That's how Watauga voted (according to the Watauga Democrat on line) and, according to the Raleigh News and Observer site, it looks to be the direction the rest of the state is going as well.

It's a good slate! Should make things interesting in November.

Dan Forest is a RINO. Forrest refused to submit a Grass Roots request for him to identify his position on gun rights. This is not a good slate. Another RINO ready to wreak havoc. A bad day for conservatives.

While I supported Tony Gurley, I have no doubt as to the conservative credentials of Dan Forest. Most of the ultra-conservatives I know in Watauga county supported him - including some of our strongest second amendment supporters. He won all 20 Watauga precincts! He has spoken of his strong second amendment support; was endorsed by (among others) Mike Huckabee who said he did so in part because of Forests 2nd amendment support....

Forest took almost 9 out of 10 of Watauga County votes. I didn't support him in the primaries but i will certainly do so in November!

I was pleased with the success of the other 3 candidates I supported. In particular Mike Causey who won by a 2-1 margin in Watauga.

John Tedesco, winner of the nomination for Superintendent of Public Instruction beat school teacher Richard Alexander by almost a 10% margin state wide. Tedesco is a controversial member of the Wake County BOE and is sure to stir things up in this race in November. Look for the teacher's union to pull out all the stops in trying to get him defeated!
