Looks like Jane Gray will face off against incumbent Ann Marie Calabria for her seat on the NC Court of Appeals. Calabria was aggressively promoted as the partisan pick for Republicans by the state GOP Chair Tom Fetzer, and it worked.
In the other Appeals Court race, if the numbers hold, incumbent Republican judge Rick Elmore will be going up against right-wing darling (and truly scary dude) Steven Walker. The best candidate in this primary was Leto Copeley, but she appears to be out of the running. Looks like I'll be voting for the lesser of two Republican evils in November.
