Raleigh, N.C. – Uriah Ward, Democratic Nominee for N.C. House in District 9, gains momentum in one of this year’s most highly-contested State House races. Earlier this year, Public Policy Polling released a poll citing this district as one of the top-five swing districts in the state.

Together we will give Pitt County the strong, thoughtful representation it deserves.
I'm proud to have the support of my friend, Alice Arnold.
