Murphy wins Kinston mayor's race

Posted: Updated:
KINSTON, N.C. - Incumbent BJ Murphy has defeated two other challengers in the race to remain in office as Kinston mayor. With 13 of 13 precincts reporting, Murphy won more votes than Ralph Clark and John Marks.

Murphy brought in 46 percent of the vote, and told 9 On Your Side tonight that things are looking up since he took the helm, and the Kinston Community is more positive.

Murphy is the first Republican mayor in Kinston since Reconstruction. Earlier this year, he announced he would not run for re-election, but at the 11th hour he changed his mind.
