Veteran US Rep. Walter Jones (R-Farmville) is no stranger to competitive primaries and faces another in 2018. In the May 8th North Carolina primary, he faces two Republicans, Craven County Commissioner Scott Dacey and computer technician and frequent candidate Phil Law. No Democrat filed in this contest, so whoever wins the GOP primary will win the seat in November. The Civitas Institute commissioned a Voter Roll Call poll (3/23-25; 700 NC-3 registered voters; 329 NC-3 likely Republican primary voters) and found Rep. Jones leading his opponents Dacey and Law, 37-28-15%, respectively.
In the last two Republican primaries, Rep. Jones won re-nomination with 65% of the vote (2016), and 51% (2014).
