Mary Fant Donnan is counting on the Triangle.
The candidate for the Democratic nomination for labor commissioner said that Wake, Durham and Orange counties will be key in her upcoming runoff with former commissioner John C. Brooks.
Because there are no other statewide runoffs next Tuesday, Donnan said that turnout will be pretty low except in areas where a local runoff is also on the ballot.
In Durham County, a countywide school board runoff, and in Orange County, a county commissioner district-wide runoff will draw voters to the poll. And Donnan said past results show Wake County typically does well in runoff turnout because of a general interest in state government.
"There's a fair amount to do in the Triangle because all three counties have something that will bring voters out already," she told Dome.
She said that legislative runoffs in Wayne, Greene and Pitt counties could also draw voters.
