A Rematch in North Carolina
In North Carolina, a potential rematch:
Republican Wilmington resident Ilario Pantano said Tuesday morning he will run again for Southeastern North Carolina’s seat in the U.S. House in 2012, setting up a potential rematch with U.S. Rep. Mike McIntyre, D-Lumberton. Pantano, 39, planned to make the announcement on Curtis Wright’s conservative radio show on WAAV 980 AM Tuesday morning.
Pantano gave McIntyre his toughest reelection contest in seven tries, winning 46 percent to McIntyre’s 53.6 percent. This district is currently scored R+5; McCain carried it, 52 percent to 47 percent.
