ELECTION 2012: Voters back marriage amendment

May 8, 2012

North Carolina voters supported an amendment to the state constitution to define marriage between one man and one woman.

The Associated Press called the decision about 9:05 p.m. with voters in favor of the amendment delivering 61 % of the vote.

The Associated Press has declared U.S. Rep. Patrick McHenry in the Republican Primary in the U.S. District 10 race.

McHenry is a four-term legislator who previously was appointed as special assistant to the U.S. Secretary of Labor by President George W. Bush. He serves on the House financial services and oversight and government reform committees.

He beat out challengers Ken Fortenberry, a newspaper publisher, and Cramerton resident Don Peterson. McHenry will face off against the winner of the Democratic primary in the November general election.
