Davidson resident will run for District 98 seat held by John Bradford

April 4. Davidson resident Lisa Jewel has announced her candidacy for NC House District 98 which is currently held by Cornelius resident John Bradford whose frequent opponent has been Democrat Christy Clark.

“I am kicking off my campaign early in one of the marquee political races in North Carolina. Announcing early is important to develop name recognition, create campaign infrastructure and build strong relationships with people of the district,” said Jewel.


She has been a precinct poll worker and poll judge, as well as Democratic chair of Precinct 127 in Davidson.


Back in December, Clark said she would run against Bradford for a fourth time this coming fall. In the 2022 rematch of their close 2020 race, Bradford won 17,925 votes vs Clark’s 17,064. It was similar to the outcome in 2020, but Clark won in 2018.

Bradford is the only Republican in the Mecklenburg County delegation in Raleigh—all the others are Democrats.
