RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) — A lot of people are talking about the fall election, but Wake County voters have one more primary to weather.
With the May primary for the Wake County Sheriff’s Office so close, the Democrat who will be up for election is still undecided.
With no one reaching the 30 percent plus one vote threshold, Sheriff Gerald Baker, who placed second, requested a runoff with first place picker – Willie Rowe – who is a former major in the sheriff’s office.
CBS 17’s Russ Bowen sat down with Rowe to discuss the bureau’s challenges.
The second primary is on July 26th. Sheriff Baker has also agreed to an in-studio interview in the coming weeks. The winner of the upcoming second primary will face Republican and former sheriff Donnie Harrison in November.
