The North Carolina Board of Elections has announced that Bobby Hanig’s challenge to the candidacy of Valerie Jordan is on the agenda for a remote meeting of the board, beginning at 3 p.m. on Friday, September 2.
Hanig, a Republican, is scheduled to face off again Jordan, a Democrat, in the NC District 3 Senate race this fall. But he has filed a protest, claiming she is not a resident of that district.
Hanig, who had been representing District 6 in the NC House, was recently appointed as NC District 1 Senator, filling the unfinished term of Bob Steinburg who resigned his seat at the end of July.
Back on Aug. 16, Hanig announced he was seeking the removal of Jordan from the November ballot on residency grounds. At an Aug. 23 Currituck County Board of Elections hearing on that protest, the board voted 3-2 to send the issue to the N.C. Board of Elections.
Members of the public and the media may listen to proceedings as follows:
Meeting materials will be posted on a rolling basis on the State Board’s meeting website
See what people are saying:
If they dont follow the law, and allow her to run, I dont see why the rest of us should be following any laws…
