Republican incumbent Dennis Riddell won the House of Representatives seat for North Carolina District 64 against Democratic opponent Ron Osborne, winning 62.69% of the vote. District 64 includes Elon, most of Burlington, Pleasant Hill and Mandale according to the district plan. The area encapsulates 84,148 citizens, according to Ballotpedia.
Riddell has served as representative from District 64 since 2012 and wants to continue to improve North Carolina’s economy.
“Our economy is doing much better than most other states. And that is a direct consequence of the reduction in taxes. The reduction in regulatory debt excesses and balanced budgets are great,” Riddell said. “We’re the number one state for business right now in the entire country, and we didn't get there by accident. That's not something you stumble upon.”
Riddell predicted his campaign would succeed because of the conversations he has had with voters.
“I think we've been able to explain our position on various topics to voters,” Riddell said. “We spent a lot of time in conversations with people during early voting, answering questions. I think people understand that the difference in the trajectory between the federal government and North Carolina is very dramatic.”
Riddell hopes to continue working for the taxpayers and business owners of Alamance County.
“It sounds kind of maudlin, I guess, but it's really been one of the greatest experiences of my life,” Riddell said.
