RALEIGH — The 2022 midterm elections are, mostly, in the books. As we wait for official election results, it appears Republicans have won a supermajority in the North Carolina Senate and are one seat short of the House supermajority.

Republicans previously held supermajorities in both the House and Senate during the first half of Democratic Governor Roy Cooper’s first term. In 2020, Cooper was reelected to a second term and Republicans kept majorities but did not gain supermajorities in that election.

Three North Carolina Medical Society members won their races Tuesday.


Dr. Kristin Baker

Dr. Kristin Baker will be the House Representative in District 82. In a Facebook post, Baker says “we have articulated our values and our vision, giving our community real hope for the safety and future of our children.”

And Dr. Greg Murphy beat his challenger in the 3rd congressional district.  Murphy, also on Facebook, says of his win: “Thank you, eastern North Carolina! I’m honored to represent you in Washington.”
