IMAGES: Victors and losers of Winston-Salem's primary election

Created with flickr slideshow.

Here are some photos that didn't make it into our Winston-Salem primary election package for our print edition today. As of early Thursday morning our website has not been updated due to technical difficulties, but pick up a hard copy of the paper to see our election coverage.
