Election 2022: Budd, Beasley To Face Off For N.C. Senate

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Republican U.S. Rep. Ted Budd will face Democrat Cheri Beasley in North Carolina’s Senate race after both easily clinched primary victories Tuesday night.

Budd had the endorsement of Donald Trump and his victory is a boost for the former president, who is looking to reshape a new generation of Republicasn.

Beasley, a former state supreme court justice, won her 11-candidate primary.
