Eddins wins Primary in GOP State House race

Blair Eddins, of Purlear, Wilkes County, won 6,847 votes (43.33 percent) of the vote in the N.C. State House District 94 Republican Primary on March 5, which includes all of Alexander and most of Wilkes counties.

Fellow Purlear resident (and Wilkes native) Stoney Greene received 4,901 votes (31.02 percent), while Alexander County’s candidates trailed behind, with Larry Yoder having 2,621 votes (16.59 percent) and Dwight Shook getting 1,433 votes (9.07 percent).

Eddins stated, “I first want to give all the glory to God. He ordains all things that come to pass. Without Him, none of this would have been possible.And I want to thank the great citizens of the 94th District. Today, we took the first step in making sure that our voices are heard in Raleigh. I am honored and humbled to have earned their vote, and I look forward to representing them. Together, we will work to make our homes and communities safe and prosperous for our children and future generations.”

In November, Eddins will face Democrat Steve Moree of Wilkesboro, who has Alexander County roots.

    I would be honored for Blair to be my representative in Raleigh. It is so rare to find someone to serve us that has integrity, and is trustworthy and honest and most of all loves and follows Jesus. I’m praying for God’s plan for you as you move forward. Thank you for being willing to serve.

    Have known Blair and his family 20+ years and have seen in him strong faith in God, honesty, integrity and willingness to do good. Have shared both good and sad times with Blair. His volunteer service to those in need speaks of his character and heart. In the capacity of NC Representative he will make the folks in his district proud of his service.
