Burr wins primary

Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr has easily won his primary election.

In a statement, Burr said he recognized he had a long road ahead.

"I am honored to have received my party’s nomination today," said Burr. "However, this is just the beginning and it will be a long road to November. I have a strong record in the Senate fighting for issues important to North Carolinians. It will be up to North Carolinians to decide if I have upheld my commitment and allow me to continue my service to this state."

In an e-mail message N.C. Republican Party Chairman Tom Fetzer asked Republicans to help Burr "fight the misguided Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda."

"As you know, Washington Democrats will pour millions of dollars into our state to try to defeat Senator Burr," Fetzer wrote.
