Incumbent Dennis Riddell has won the N.C. house representative seat for District 64. According to the North Carolina State Board of Elections dashboard, Riddell beat his opponent, Eric Henry, by almost 20% of votes. He will now be serving in his fifth term.
“I'm conservative. I think that the things we've done in Raleigh over the last eight years that I've been there are conservative basic principles. And we've proven that they work,” Riddell told Elon News Network in early October.
Riddell did not respond to Elon News Network’s request for comment on election night.
Riddell is a small business owner which has impacted his views on the economy. During the pandemic, he has voted for legislation that helps small businesses. The Golden LEAF Program allows for businesses to apply for emergency loans during the coronavirus pandemic. In September, Riddell voted for House Bill 1105, which provided more funding for the program.
