Senate primary isn't over for North Carolina Democrats

Secretary of State Elaine Marshall and former state Sen. Cal Cunningham are headed to a Senate primary runoff, meaning that the Democrats will duke it out for the next seven weeks rather than take on the Republicans. Marshall led Tuesday's Democratic primary with 36 percent of the vote, just short of the 40 percent needed to clinch her party's nomination. Cunningham immediately called for a runoff, which will be held June 22.
