Update: Campaign says Gene McIntyre 'resting comfortably' after collision

NEW LONDON — Gene McIntyre, Republican candidate for N.C. Senate District 25, is “resting comfortably” after a one-car accident Wednesday while he was driving to Rowan County, his campaign said.
In a Facebook post, the campaign said McIntyre plans to be back on the trail soon.
McIntyre was traveling from a campaign event in Stanly County to door knock in Rowan County when he was involved in a one-car accident. He was taken to Stanly Regional Medical Center and then taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte for further evaluation.
“Gene is resting comfortably with his wife, Sue, and children,” the campaign said. “They are thankful for the prayers and well wishes being sent.
“Gene fully intends to be back out on the campaign trail very soon, spreading his positive message for the need of a conservative, effective senator for the 25th District in Raleigh.”
McIntyre is a Stanly County commissioner and retired educator. His Democratic rival, Gene McLaurin, on Wednesday night asked for prayers for his opponent.
The Senate District 25 seat is up for grabs after incumbent Sen. Bill Purcell decided not to run for re-election.
Redistricting last year brought southeastern Rowan County into the district, which also includes Scotland, Richmond, Anson and Stanly counties.
