Trump Pick Ted Budd Wins NC GOP Senate Primary

NBC News reports:

Rep. Ted Budd, R-N.C., won North Carolina’s Republican Senate primary on Tuesday, defeating former Gov. Pat McCrory and former U.S. Rep. Mark Walker. His victory sets up a fall battle with Democratic nominee Cheri Beasley, the former chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court.

Budd was locked in a tight race with McCrory for months but was able to turn the race into less of nail-biter with just weeks to go thanks mostly to two friends who recently became enemies — former President Donald Trump and the Club for Growth, a conservative economics group spending millions in Republican primaries.
