Early life and education

Jacob Curtis Blackwood Jr. was born October 17, 1942, in Charlotte, North Carolina. He received his BA in History from the University of Georgia in 1965. He continued his studies at Ohio University receiving a Masters in Educational Administration in 1967 before returning to the University of Georgia and graduating with an EdD in 1972.[3]

Political career

Congressional campaign, 1996

Blackwood ran for Congress in 1996 against long-term incumbent Bill Hefner. That year, Blackwood's main primary opponent was car dealer Sherrill Morgan who was the Republicans' 1994 nominee to face Hefner. Morgan only lost by four percentage points in 1994 and was heavily favored to win the nomination to face Hefner again. Morgan did not get enough votes to avoid a run-off election and Blackwood won the run-off with almost 64% of the vote.[4] He went on to lose the general election to Hefner.[5]

State senate campaign, 1998

Blackwood next sought to win a seat in the North Carolina Senate in 1998 in the 17th district. There were two seats available in the district and Blackwood along with fellow Republican Don Dawkins challenged incumbent Democrats Aaron Plyler and Bill Purcell. Both incumbents won re-election.[6]
