Wake County voters on Tuesday elected four Democratic-backed candidates to the Wake County Board of Education, but one race is expected to end in a run-off next month.
That race – between District 3 incumbent Kevin Hill, a Democrat representing north Raleigh, and Republican challenger Heather Losurdo – will determine whether there will be a shift in power for the governing board of the state’s largest school system.
Hill leads Losurdo with 49.7 percent of the votes but doesn’t have the necessary 50 percent needed to secure a win. Losurdo, who received 39.8 percent of the vote, is the only chance now that the current majority has to remain in control of the board. She said she will ask for a run-off.
