A long list of Republican and Democratic statewide candidates are making bids for the party nominations. Here's a recap of our coverage:
--Democratic governor's race: Walter Dalton, Bob Etheridge, Bill Faison and three other candidates. Dalton leads in the money race and polls, but after the final days of campaigning, the contest tightened ahead of Tuesday.
--Republican governor's race: Pat McCrory is cruising to victory.
--Democratic lieutenant governor's race got testy. The state employees association also played a role.
--Republican lieutenant governor's race includes a crowded field.
Other statewide races: state auditor, state superintendent, secretary of state, state treasurer, agriculture commissioner, insurance commissioner and labor commissioner. Here's a recap on the money race and polls (though some polling numbers now outdated).
