District 6’s boundaries have changed with this race and now encompass parts of Guilford County, Rockingham County, Caswell County and Caswell County – previously it consisted of only Guilford and part of Forsyth Counties. As this seat overlaps well with NC-4, where Republicans are strong, this seat could easily return to them but for Castelli’s anti-abortion and anti-gay views it might turn back towards Democrats.
