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.
