Friends of Durham like Phelps, Hannah for House District 50

Bookmark and Share

Travis Phelps of Durham, 22, has won the Friends of Durham endorsement in the Democratic primary for state House District 50. One of the county's three major political-action committees, the Friends chose Phelps, an employee at Reckless Paints & Accessories, over Orange County Commissioner Valerie Foushee.

In the Republican primary, the Friends endorsed Efland banker W. Lewis Hannah over three rivals: Jason Chambers of Bahama, Rod Chaney of Hillsborough and Thomas Samuel Wright of Mebane.

House District 50, reconfigured in the 2011 redistricting, covers most of Orange County and northern and eastern regions of Durham County.
