A straw poll recommended Rep. Dan Blue move to the Senate.
The candidates were Blue, Bernard Allen Jr., former educator Carol Dalenko Bennett, Pfizer lobbyist Marlowe Foster, Wake school board member Rosa Gill, media consultant J. Mills Holloway, former DMV director Alexander Killens and St. Augustine's College provost Kim Luckes.
RWCA president Dan Coleman said that Blue won the straw poll by a significant margin, followed by Holloway.
The group's political action committee will meet tonight to take a formal vote. The result will then be forwarded to the Wake County Democratic Party, which will make a final nomination for Gov. Beverly Perdue.
"The Wake County Democratic Party is not necessarily beholden to that endorsement," said Coleman.
