Businessmen Mark Meadows and Vance Patterson advanced to a runoff election in North Carolina's 11th Congressional District GOP primary.
The Associated Press called the runoff just after 10:45 p.m. With 96 percent reporting, Meadows led Patterson 38 percent to 24 percent. The winner of the July 17 runoff will face Democrat Hayden Rogers, a former aide to retiring Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler, in the November general election.
Rogers won the Democratic primary with 56 percent of the vote.
