Chelsea White Out as Candidate in Dems NC11 Primary


It's a technicality, but one that can kill a candidacy.

Chelsea White, the newest Democrat to announce (on Sept. 19) that she would enter the 2022 Democratic primary in NC11, has discovered that she didn't change her voter registration from Unaffiliated to Democrat within the 90-day window before announcing.

Per North Carolina General Statute 163-106.1, a candidate must be affiliated with a party “for at least 90 days as of the date of that person filing such notice of candidacy.”

So she's withdrawn before ever really getting started.

There are still seven other Democrats all contending to be The One to take on Madison Cawthorn in 2022.
