Darrell Bonapart told the Charlotte Observer Tuesday he would appeal to the State Board of Elections a decision by the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections to uphold challenge to his candidacy in Senate District 39 primary on March 3.
The challenge contested Bonapart’s claim of residence in Steele Creek. The appeal may delay that primary election in southwest Charlotte. The primary would include Democrat DeAndrea Salvador. Republican Joshua Niday has filed and does not face a primary. As of Wednesday morning, Jan. 8, Bonapart’s name remained on the Board’s online candidate list for the District 39 Senate seat.
