RALEIGH   Supporters of a North Carolina personhood amendment swept to victory in all four statewide Republican contests in today's second primary election of 2012.

All four winners had answered yes to the following question:

Do you support a personhood amendment to the NC constitution like the Colorado 2012 Right To Life Amendment (http://www.coloradorighttolife.org/2012-wording) protecting each human being whether he or she is inside or outside the womb?

See "Five of eight North Carolina statewide runoff candidates support personhood amendment."

The four winners are as follows:

  • Dan Forest for NC Lieutenant Governor (67.89% of 149,406 votes with 97% of precincts reporting)
  • Mike Causey for NC Commissioner of Insurance (57.39% of 140,614 votes with 96% of precincts reporting)
  • Ed Goodwin for NC Secretary of State (54.48% of 136,296 votes with 97% of precincts reporting)
  • John Tedesco for NC Superintendent of Public Instruction (54.42% of 138,485 votes with 96% of precincts reporting)
