The primary of all primaries – still not over

Early voting is under way this week in North Carolina’s primary elections. So far there is not much excitement. Sixty-two years ago we had a much different primary and run-off election experience. Voters came out in record numbers. Today, a surprising number of people still remember that election and can tell you how the bitter struggle divided the state. Many of those who “remember” were not yet born in 1950.
