RALEIGH, N.C. -- Durham attorney Larry Hall (D) won the runoff race Tuesday for the 29th House District, while Pat Hurley (R) won in the 70th District.
With all 21 precincts reporting in unofficial results, Hall had 56 percent of the vote compared to 44 percent for former Durham city council member Sandy Ogburn. Hall likely will replace outgoing Democratic Rep. Paul Miller, who declined to run for another term. He won't have a Republican opponent in the general election, but could face a write-in challenge. Hurley will take on Democrat Happy Spivey of Ramseur in November in the heavily GOP district. Nine-term incumbent Rep. Arlie Culp, R-Randolph, is retiring.
