The campaigning is over, now the wait begins to find out the who the winners and losers are in dozens of elections around southeastern North Carolina.

"I think it’s a relief," said Kure Beach Mayor candidate Dean Lambeth, who spent Tuesday outside Kure Beach Town Hall to try and sway voters one last time. "We’ve been here, of course, since 6:30 this morning. Our legs are a little tired, but from 3:00 on, we’ll be running on adrenaline. And then after 7:30, we can sit down and rest."

Lambeth’s opponent Jim Vatrt agreed.

"I can’t wait for 7:30 to roll around," Vatrt said. "It’s a long campaign. You work hard on it."

Thomas Wright’s 2008 conviction will stand. Tuesday, judges denied Wright’s appeal of three counts of obtaining property by false pretenses.

In April of last year, Wright was found guilty of mishandling charitable contributions and fraudulently obtaining a $150,000 loan. He is currently serving six to eight years for his crimes.

A three judge panel ruled Tuesday that Wright did receive a fair trial.
