Another Republican Resignation ... Where There's Little Chance for a Democratic Pickup

State Senator Harry Brown, the Republican Majority Leader and the main budget writer in the NC Senate, announced that he would not be running for reelection in Senate District 6 (Jones and Onslow counties).

Senate District 6 is listed as "Likely Republican" for 2020, with a 65.90% expected Republican vote share. That's an advantage that even a blue tsunami couldn't over-top.

By waiting so late to announce his retirement, Brown likely has his anointed successor all lined up and ready to go. The Republican primary -- if there is one -- will likely be the only election in 2020 that counts for Senate District 6.
