RALEIGH, North Carolina: State House representative Daniel McComas (R) resigned from his seat earlier this month after he was appointed by Governor Bev Perdue (D) as the Chair of the North Carolina State Ports Authority.
Ted Davis, Jr. was nominated as a temporary replacement for McComas' seat. Davis is already running for election in the district. He will face Emilie Swearingen (D) in the general election on November 6, 2012.
