US House District 12, general election

by Yes Weekly Election Coverage

Democrat Mel Watt has represented North Carolina’s 12th Congressional District, which snakes along the Interstate 85 corridor from Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem down to Charlotte, since 1992. Greg Dority defeated Scott Cumbie in the June 22 runoff to earn the quixotic prospect of challenging Watt in this heavily Democratic district.
