Wake County Commissioner Tony Gurley placed second in the GOP primary for Lt. Governor, with 25 percent of the vote. The winner was Dan Forest, with 33 percent. But, since neither candidate received the required 40 percent for an outright win, a runoff is the next step. On his Facebook page, Gurley says he will call for the runoff. The winner of the runoff will face Democratic nominee Linda Coleman, who defeated Eric Mansfield.
