The initial Primary Election for U.S. House District 3 took place on April 30. Because none of the Republican candidates received over 30 percent of the vote, a second Primary Election will be held on July 9 between the top two GOP vote-getters: Greg Murphy (22.54%) and Joan Perry (15.44%). The General Election between the winner of this second primary and the other candidates listed below is scheduled for Tuesday, September 10.
As a service to North Carolina voters, the NC Family Policy Council has surveyed all candidates running in the Special Election for U.S. House District 3 to replace Congressman Walter B. Jones, Jr. The candidates’ responses to our 2019 Candidate Questionnaire are included below. We invited candidates to provide additional comments or explanations for their responses, if the “Yes,” “No,” or “Undecided” response options did not allow them to fully express their positions on the issues. You may click on the candidates’ names to view a scanned copy of their questionnaire and additional comments. NC Family made multiple attempts to contact all candidates by mail, phone, and email (when available) to encourage their participation in NC Family’s non-partisan 2019 Voter Guide.
