Bacot spoke with news anchor Tracey Early, who focused the interview on the run-off that will be held between former state Sen. Cal Cunningham and current N.C. Secretary of State Elaine Marshall for the Democratic nomination. The winner of the June run-off will face incumbent Republican Sen. Richard Burr in the November election.
