Dale Folwell, who began his political career in Forsyth County, is running again to keep his seat as North Carolina's treasurer, facing Democratic challenger, Ronnie Chatterji.  

Republican incumbent Folwell won the seat in 2016, becoming the first Republican North Carolina Treasurer since 1876. He previously represented Forsyth County's 74th House District in the legislature.

He's being challenged by Chatterji, a Duke business professor and former senior economist in the White House Council of Economic Advisers during the Obama administration.

Healthcare has emerged as a key topic in the race.

Folwell will continue to push for his Clear Pricing Project, which he says will boost transparency in the state health plan and save money. 

Critics of the plan say it will reduce revenues to health care providers, and some major hospital groups declined to sign on after Folwell introduced it two years ago.

Chatterji says he will advocate for expanding Medicaid across North Carolina.
