NC Senator Bill Rabon (R-Brunswick)

North Carolina Senator Bill Rabon, a Republican from Brunswick County who represents District 8, now has two November opponents.  Democrat David Sink and Libertarian Anthony Mascolo will challenge the four-term Senator. 

Mascolo beat his Libertarian challenger, Randy Crow, by 15 votes.  That might sound like a small margin, but it equates to sixteen-and-a-half percentage points.

For more perspective, 53 people voted for Mascolo.  38 voted for Crow.
