RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Republican David Rouzer gets another chance to win the North Carolina congressional district he lost two years ago by a razor-thin margin

Rouzer won Tuesday’s Republican primary against Woody White and Chris Andrade in the 7th Congressional District.

There is no incumbent running since Democrat Mike McIntyre is retiring after nine terms. McIntyre narrowly beat Rouzer two years ago despite the state’s Republican-dominated Legislature drawing the district lines to favor Republicans.

Rouzer will face New Hanover County Commissioner Jonathan Barfield who beat retired Smithfield police officer Walter A. Martin, Jr. in the Democratic primary.

Rouzer worked for former U.S. Sens. Jesse Helms and Elizabeth Dole, in President George W. Bush’s Agriculture Department. He then was elected to the state Senate.
