Democrat files to run for state senate against incumbent Amy Galey


Mebane city councilman Sean Ewing has filed to run against Amy Scott Galey for a seat in the state senate that Galey now holds.

Ewing is a Democrat serving on the non-partisan Mebane city council; he is also second vice president of the Alamance County Democratic Party. Galey is a Republican who won the seat in 2020 after previously serving as chairman of the Alamance County board of commissioners.

The new state senate district 25, which has been approved by the N.C. Supreme Court, is now comprised of Alamance County and the northeast portion of Randolph County.

When Galey was elected in 2020, it was to the 24th district, which was then comprised of Alamance and eastern Guilford counties, which is where her opponent, J.D. Wooten, lived.  Galey beat Wooten 52.43% to 47.57%.
