It looks like Wake County school board member Chris Malone will be the Republican nominee for the state House 35 seat.
With 15 of the 18 precincts reporting, Malone has 56 percent of the vote while Duane Cutlip has 44 percent. Malone is headed toward a November battle against former school board member Lori Millberg, who is the Democratic nominee for the seat.
It looks like Cutlip's attacks on Malone for voting for the school budget didn't work.
It's too soon to report anything on the statewide races for Debra Goldman and John Tedesco.
With all 18 precincts reporting, Malone has 56.82 percent of the vote.
