NC Commissioner Of Insurance Mike Causey Was Reelected To A Second Term In The Statewide Election On November 3rd

(Southern Pines)…..NC Commissioner of Insurance Mike Causey was reelected to a second term in the statewide election on November 3rd. The final unofficial results showed that Causey had defeated former Commissioner Wayne Goodwin with 51.76% to 48.24% of votes cast in the race. (Causey 2,775,490; Goodwin 2,586,469). These numbers are largely in line with those won by Republicans in 6 of the 10 races that form offices that constitute the Council of State. Commissioner Causey in a special comment to the NEWSLETTER said “I am grateful to have another four years to further tackle issues I have found to have hindered consumers, policyholders, agents and the fire service during my first term,” said Commissioner Causey. Continuing, “I will continue to work with my team and the legislature to meet the insurance needs of North Carolinians, especially during states of emergencies, such as hurricanes, and most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of my work to help our citizens meet their insurance needs, I plan to continue our work with the legislators and the NC Captive Insurance Association to make North Carolina the best state in the nation for captive insurance companies to call home.”
In other statewide elections Governor Roy Cooper(D) was elected to a 2nd gubernatorial term and keeping with its penchant for divided government in the state, political newcomer Mark Robinson(R) was elected Lt. Governor. Robinson becomes the first individual of color to hold statewide office since southern reconstruction in the 1860s.
In the General Assembly Republicans picked up four additional seats in the House of Representatives and Democrats added one seat in the Senate with Republicans retaining control of both houses but without a super majority, making gubernatorial vetoes harder to override. Indications are that Senator Phil Berger(R) will remain Majority Leader in the Senate and Rep. Tim Moore(R) will continue as Speaker of the House.
