RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — U.S. Rep. David Price will get two more years in Congress.
The 72-year-old Democrat was re-elected Tuesday in North Carolina’s 4th Congressional District,
With 90 percent of the district’s precincts reporting unofficial returns, Price took 73 percent of the vote to beat 54-year-old Republican Tim D’Annunzio.
Price was first elected to Congress in 1986 and represented the 4th District until he lost in 1994. He recaptured the seat two years later and has been re-elected ever since.
When Republican lawmakers redrew Price’s district, they placed him with longtime Democratic Congressman Brad Miller. But Miller chose not to run again, clearing Price’s path.
The 4th District now starts in Fayetteville and snakes up to Chapel Hill, then west taking in parts of Durham and Raleigh.
