The Trump-endorsed congressman beat his establishment-backed competitor, former Gov. Pat McCrory (R), less than an hour after polls closed on Tuesday, garnering more than 56 percent of the vote by 8 p.m. compared to McCrory’s 27 percent, the New York Times reported. Former Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC) had nearly 9 percent of the vote by 8 p.m., and no other candidate had topped over 4 percent.

After leading in the polls by double digits in recent months, Budd’s significant lead puts him well past the required 30 percent of votes to avoid a runoff election, meaning he will go on to face the Democrat nominee, former chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court Cheri Beasley, in the November general election.

Budd is running to fill retiring Sen. Richard Burr’s (R-NC) seat — Burr, who preferred McCrory to replace him, was notably one of the seven Senate Republicans who voted in favor of convicting former President Donald Trump on impeachment charges in 2021.
