Does It Matter If the Conservative Wears a Skirt?
The primary run-off today between two Republican conservatives down in the NC-3 has turned into a contest into whether the GOP likes or wants women in Congress. Many high-profile Republican women, including Virginia Foxx, are verbally supporting Joan Perry, an anti-abortion pediatrician, while high-profile conservative men like Congressman Mark Meadows from the NC-11 are supporting Greg Murphy. The New York Times has covered the race ("A Battle of the Sexes") and so has the Washington Post.
The winner of the primary run-off today is expected to win the September election against Democrat Allen Thomas.
Greg Murphy won this primary run-off with around 60% of the vote.
