The National Association of Realtors PAC is playing big in North Carolina’s 9th District special election, and for one of their own. RPAC filed an independent expenditure declaration that they intend to spend $868,000 between now and the May 14th primary to help nominate realtor Leigh Thomas Brown in the Republican primary.
If successful, she will face 2018 Democratic nominee Dan McCready, who is unopposed in the Democratic primary. To be nominated, a contender must receive at least 30% of the vote in the party primary. If no candidate reaches this threshold, a special runoff election will be held on September 10th between the top two primary finishers. The special general would then be held on November 5th.
