All five incumbent state insurance commissioners up for re-election won their bids Tuesday, four Democrats and one Republican, including two members of the NAIC’s leadership team.

Republican Adam Hamm of North Dakota won against Democratic competitor Tom Potter by  63.25% to 36.59%.

Goodwin dealt with a straight ticket ballot but prevailed, winning 51.83% to Republican Mike Causey ‘s 48.17% in the state that presidential contender, Gov. Mitt Romney won narrowly and which has a new Republican Governor, former Charlotte mayor Pat McCrory. In the only party switch in the 11 gubernatorial races this year, McCrory beat current Lt. Governor Walter Dalton to become the first GOP head of the state since 1988, according to press reports.

Goodwin, a former state legislator and lawyer in private practice, discussed his priorities with National Underwriter the day after the election, noting the health care reform balance he must strike with the new Republican governor in a state that took a wait and see attitude on PPACA Exchange implementation.
