Democratic state Sen. Wiley Nickel secured the win for North Carolina’s sole swing district Tuesday, defeating MAGA candidate Bo Hines to represent the 13th District in the House.

Nickel centered his platform on abortion access, affordable housing, and Medicare. Both candidates appeared to stick to the party line on the issues, with Hines accusing Nickel of being soft on crime due to his background as a defense attorney. Nickel has also said that he would vote to codify the protections outlined in Roe v. Wade, which would solidify a woman’s access to abortion.

The district Nickel now represents consists of the southern border of Raleigh and farms in the west, a collection of urban, suburban, and rural communities.
