NEW HANOVER COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) - Marcia Morgan is the democratic nominee running in the newly re-drawn state House District 19. The district has no incumbent running in 2020. Rep. Ted Davis (R-New Hanover) held the office when the district covered part of New Hanover County. Rep. Davis is now running for the District 20 seat, after the General Assembly redrew district lines and divided District 19 to include eastern Brunswick County and the southern and western areas of New Hanover County.
Morgan ran against Rep. Davis for the seat in 2018, losing by less than three percentage points. She received 82 percent of the vote in the March 2020 primary to win the nomination.
Morgan retired as a Colonel in the U.S. Army following 25 years of service, after starting a career as a teacher. She lives in Carolina Beach.
