John Fleming and Chris Gorman, who engaged in a political slugfest during the campaign, finished in a near dead heat Saturday night in the Republican Party's 4th Congressional District primary. They are headed for a Nov. 4 runoff for their party's nomination.
Paul Carmouche was in a tougher-than-expected race in the Democratic Party's congressional primary, leading a four-candidate field but not getting the majority needed to win outright.
With all precincts reporting late Saturday night, Fleming and Gorman were less than 500 votes apart out of more than 41,000 cast. Fleming had 35 percent of the vote to 34 percent for Gorman. Jeff Thompson was third with 31 percent of the vote.
Thompson late Saturday night did not endorse either candidate in the runoff.
