GOP Establishment Gets Its Man in N.C.'s 7th District, but Goes to Runoff in 8th

Hudson and Keadle are battling for the right to face Democratic Rep. Larry Kissell in a reshaped, GOP-friendly district that Republicans see as one of their best pickup opportunities in the country. Meanwhile, national Republicans breathed a sigh of relief as state Sen. David Rouzer dispatched 2010 nominee Ilario Pantano in the 7th District. Rouzer was seen as the stronger candidate to oppose Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre in another GOP-friendly seat, but Pantano's name recognition from a previous run was nearly too high a barrier. The Associated Press called the race for Rouzer after 11 p.m. With 98 percent of precincts reporting, Rouzer led Pantano 49 percent to 44 percent.
