Susan Wilson — North Carolina State House, District 115
RESULTS: Wilson Defeated
Last week, Asheville, N.C., state House challenger Susan Wilson was called "an ugly old dyke" on Twitter. This tweet wasn't from just any random person with an iPhone and a Twitter handle — it was from Michael F. Muller, a Republican operative who once managed a separate political campaign for Wilson's opponent, Nathan Ramsey. Unfortunately for Wilson, she was defeated on Tuesday. With all 32 precincts reporting, Ramsey had 54.5% of the vote.
