Lt. Gov. Jimmy Green watches returns
...defeated Republican Bill Cobey
RALEIGH Jimmy Green, saying "a win for me
is a win for North Carolina," was re-elected
lieutenant governor of the state Tuesday, defeating
former University of North Carolina athletic
director and Republican challenger Bill Cobey.
With about 63 percent of the precincts counted,
Green led with 54 percent of the vote. Both, the
Associated Press and United Press International
projected that Green would win the race.
Green said that he won the election because he
"stood on the record he had established during four
years in office.
'l talked to the people of the state about the
experience I have," Green said. "I talked about
Jimmy Green and positive issues."
Cobey said he would not concede the race until
more of the vote had been counted. "1 won't be
totally satisfied unless I win," he said. "But I can
hold up my head and know we ran a good race."
John Ingram won a third term as Insurance
Commissioner by defeating Republican Ed Tenney
with 59 percent of the vote. Ingram's victory led a
Democratic sweep of the Council of State offices.
"We are pleased to be working with the people of
North Carolina for four more years," Ingram said.
"We have received a pledge from the governor that
some of the laws limiting our powers will be
"We hope to motivate the young people to take
up the torch since we are dealing with pocket book
issues," he added. "We already have the support of

Tenney and his campaign workers blamed a lack
of funds and exposure for the defeat in the race.
Tenney of Chapel Hill had said earlier in the night
that he hoped he. would get some help from the
.strong showing by Ronald Reagan in the state.

Republican has been elected since 1896, two
incumbents and a Democratic newcomer were
Attorney General Rufus Edmisten won another
term by defeating Asheviile attorney Keith Snyder

JunL, Hackney take vote
From staff reports
The race in the 17th District for the N.C. House
seemed to be the only one going as Democrats had
hoped. . .:
And the Republican challenger in it never showed up
again after filing for the spot in May.
Incumbent Patricia Hunt and newcomer Joe
Hackney had an easy win over ghost candidate James
S. Blair and spent most of the evening contemplating
the defeat of President Jimmy Carter. "I think it is a
tragedy that we allowed him (Reagan) to be nominated,
much less elected," Hunt said. .
"I'm very disappointed (about Carter's loss),"
Hackney said. "I thought he was much superior. We'll
do our best to support Reagan."
Both Hunt and Hackney said the Reagan victory
would not affect th'eir positions on the issues or what
i a i
they would try to accomplish in the House. .
In the 16th District Senate race, it looked like three
time incumbent Russell Walker was a winner, but
fellow Democratic incumbent Charles Vickery was
having a harder time of it, fighting out the second seat
with Republican challenger Charles Adams. Alice
Ward, the other Republican in the race, appeared to be
out of the picture at press time.
Both Ward and Adams were running 2-to-I ahead of
Walker and Vickery in their home cdunty, Randolph.
Randolph, Orange, Moore and Chatham counties
make up the 16th District. '
"They (the incumbents) are not voting the way most
of the conservatives in Randolph County want them to
vote," Adams said. Ward said she did not believe the
incumbents adequately represented Randolph County
because it is both rural and conservative.

From staff reports
t Democratic incumbents Richard Vhitted and Don Wilihoit
seemed sure to secure their Orange County Board of
Commissioners seats Tuesday night at 12:30 a.m. with roughly
two-thirds of the precincts counted.
With roughly 97 of the precincts counted. Whitted and
Wilihoit had received 15,956 and 15,944 votes respectively
while Barbour had gotten 7,044 votes after 35 of the 36
precincts had been reported.
Wilihoit; who spent most of the evening at county
Democratic headquarters on Franklin Street, said the
Democratic victory "demonstrated a vote of confidence for
our board. We look forward to continuing our programs. No
major policy changes will be made."
Whitted and Wilihoit had the election weil in hand early in
the evening, but despite her distant third-place showing
Barbour still had hopes of winning at that time.
"I'm going to win," Barbour said. "We've run a good
campaign and. we've contacted a lot of people. I think the
Republican turnout was good." '
Barbour, who campaigned against the increases in county
taxes and spending that she said had taken place with Wilihoit
and Whitted on the board, said she had raised important
public concerns and that she had gotten positive response from
Whitted was unavailable for comment.
The strong showing of the local Democrats was one of the
bright spots at local Democratic headquarters. Those in
attendance, who included Chapel Hill Mayor Joe Nassif and
Carrboro Mayor Bob Drakeford, became quiet as President
Jimmy Carter made his concession speech.
But no one was particularly surprised by the strong showing
of the Democratic candidates. Democratic " opponents of
Whitted and Wilihoit ran campaigns similar to Barbour's last
May in the primary and fared just as poorly.
in the Plantation Acres precinct. North
Carrboro also narrowly defeated the
referendum, but a higher than expected yes
vote was reported.
. The referendum gives the Carrboror Board
of r Aldermen the , -authority ; to - enact ' a
property tax of not more than 10 cents per
$100 valuation to pay for the bus routes that
serve the town.
The town's routes now are financed by
federal revenue-sharing funds. Officials agree
that the federal revenue-sharing program is
too unstable for Carrboro to depend on for
an ongoing program.
Sharer said the referendum did not mean
an automatic Jax increase. He said the town
would continue to use the federal revenue
sharing money as long' as Congress did not
discontinue the program.
Hilliard Caldwell of the Carrboro
Association of Taxpayers, which opposed the
referendum, said the group would continue
to fight against higher taxes in Carrboro.
