Carolina Journal reports:

Republican candidate Amy Evans aims to take back a seat Democrats took from Republicans in 2008.

The race between Evans and Democratic incumbent John Ager is listed as competitive by the N.C. FreeEnterprise Foundation, which closely tracks elections. Evans and Ager share a common cause in education: Both support improving rural education, investing in community colleges, and raising teachers’ pay.

This is Evans’ first race, and she is promising to focus on deregulating small businesses and improving vocational education. Ager names education, the environment, and the integrity of the General Assembly as his biggest concerns.
