North Carolina Constitution Party Legislative Nominee Set Record for Minor Party Candidates in North Carolina for Over 100 Years

Ballot Access News

Last month, Chris Cole, Constitution Party nominee for North Carolina State Senate, 41st district, polled 28.07% in a two-person race. He ran in the 41st district, which is centered in Charlotte.

Although it is not exceptional for a minor party candidate to poll as high as 28% in a two-person race, it is unusual in North Carolina. Cole’s percentage was the highest percentage for any third party candidate for North Carolina state office since 1912, when the Progressive Party was running.
