Local Attorney Donald Buie is ending his unaffiliated run for the N.C. Court of Appeals seat of Judge Martha Geer, who stepped down in May.

In an email to The Chronicle, he said he has suspended his campaign “due to unforeseen personal and family issues.” Voters will still see Buie’s name on the ballot and even in their mailbox, since his departure comes after the ballots have been printed and after information about judicial candidates was mailed out by the N.C. Board of Elections.

Two candidates remain who are vying for Geer’s old seat. One is Democrat Margaret Eagles, who has served as a district court judge in Wake County since 2009 and has been endorsed by Geer. The other is Republican Hunter Murphy, a trial attorney in Waynesville who has been endorsed by former N.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Orr.
