Andrew Murray (Republican) Wins Charlotte-Meck. D.A. Race! Yeah!!

Murray Wins DA Race; Bailey Re-elected Sheriff

Many of the races in Mecklenburg County were very close on Tuesday night.

For the first time in over 30 years, Mecklenburg County will have a new district attorney, Republican Andrew Murray.

Murray earned nearly 10,000 more votes than Michael D. Barnes, winning 52 percent to 48 percent.

Murray says as district attorney, his major concern will be combating repeat criminals.

"Making sure that we continue to identify those who continue to plague our society and try to keep them in jail as best we can," Murray said. "That's a team that I will construct immediately that is going to work hard assimilating all information as soon as someone is arrested, identifying those we don't want out because of the crime and their background and making sure we have all information available."

Meanwhile, the race for Mecklenburg County Sheriff ran close until about midnight when Democrat Chipp Bailey took the lead over Republican Christopher R. Hailey, winning 62 percent to 38 percent.
