“It’s time to pack our bags and make the trip to Raleigh now,” Snow Hill Mayor Don Davis told his supporters during his victory speech Tuesday. Davis triumphed in his race against state Board of Education member Kathy Taft in the Democratic contest for the 5th state Senate District covering Greene, Pitt and Lenoir counties. Davis will take on outgoing Rep. Louis Pate, R-Wayne, in November for the right to succeed retiring Sen. John Kerr, D-Wayne.
