#ncga: Prospects of GOP re-taking Pendleton’s House seat look bleak

Gary Pendleton (R) lost his hold on Wake County’s House District 49 in November 2016.  One would think rookie legislator Cynthia Ball (D) would be ripe for the taking in a district that has seen recent GOP representation.

Sadly, the latest campaign reports indicate that Ms. Ball is likely to win a second term in November.

Republican nominee David Robertson reported raising NO money in the first quarter of 2018. His second quarter report showed three donations to his campaign for a total of $1,030.

Ball, on the other hand, looks much more comfortable.  Her first quarter report indicates $42,682.93 in contributions, while her second quarter report shows another $28,811 in donations.
