Raleigh, NC - With the completion of the Robeson County canvas, it is clear that Paul Newby has secured a majority of the state's votes to become the next Chief Justice of North Carolina. Justice Newby ran a strong grassroots oriented campaign and overcame a 7 to 1 spending margin to complete the GOP sweep of the North Carolina statewide judicial elections.
“Congratulations to Paul Newby on a well deserved and hard fought victory,” said NCGOP Chairman Michael Whatley. “Justice Newby will serve with honor and distinction as our next Chief Justice and will faithfully uphold the rule of law. Justice Newby understands the role of the judge is to say what the law is - not what it should be. This election, the people of North Carolina made a decisive statement by electing eight conservative judges to the Court of Appeals and Supreme Court."
