Judge Throws Out Special Carteret Co. Re-Vote

A superior court judge has canceled next month's planned re-vote in Carteret County as illegal. No big surprise to observers who thought the State Board of Election's decision to allow a revote in Carteret County alone, among two special classes of voters, was a poorly cobbled bit of footwear if there ever was one.

What seems likely now is a statewide re-vote to decide who gets to run the Department of Agriculture ... a costly proposition but the only solution that is likely to satisfy the courts. It's been incumbent Ag. Secretary Britt Cobb's contention all along.
