NC legislative primaries debate style, substance

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - Many of the 50 or so North Carolina General Assembly primaries on May 6 ballots are happening because an incumbent is retiring or seeking higher office, like House Speaker Thom Tillis running for the U.S. Senate.
More are happening because critics say incumbents are either too far to the left or right, wrong on an issue or just refuse to get along.
Outspoken Republican Sen. Bob Rucho has landed a spirited challenge from attorney Matt Arnold in the Charlotte suburbs. Arnold says Rucho's style has been counterproductive for constituents.
Rep. Robert Brawley of Iredell County is on the outs with the House leadership because of a feud with Tillis. He's got a challenger.
The State Employees Association of North Carolina has targeted Sen. Ralph Hise of Mitchell County for defeat.
