Michael B. Nifong, the Durham County district attorney leading the prosecution of rape accusations against members of the Duke University men's lacrosse team, narrowly won election to a new four-year term. To avoid a runoff the leading candidate had to exceed 40%. Mr. Nifong won 45 percent of the vote, just ahead of Freda Black, a former assistant district attorney, who won 42%. He has no opponent in the general election. Many say Mr. Nifong used the case against the Duke players to gain publicity for the election.
