Andrew Womble: 24,357 votes (53 percent)
Nancy Lamb: 21,411 votes (47 percent)
I’d like to attribute Nancy Lamb’s defeat to her misbegotten role in the prosecution of the Edenton Seven. But voters in the First Judicial District probably gave more weight to her being a Democrat and to her having allowed a backlog of cases during her time in the DA’s office.
