Mel Watt

All eyes are on the North Carolina U.S. Senate race, but several candidates have lined up to fill the congressional seat vacated by former Rep. Mel Watt, who stepped down to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency. State legislator Alma Adams is expected to win the May 6 primary, but that hasn't stopped several other Democrats and two Republicans from giving it a good Tar Heel try.
