Norman Wesley Sanderson Jr. (born July 7, 1951) is a Republican member of the North Carolina General Assembly, representing the state's third House district, including constituents in Craven and Pamlico counties. He defeated incumbent Representative Alice Graham Underhill in the 2010 general election.
Sanderson next decided to challenge incumbent Democrat Alice Graham Underhill for the NC House District 3 seat. Neither faced any primary that year. Underhill narrowly beat Sanderson, 49.92%–47.65%.
|Democratic||Alice Graham Underhill||16,943||49.92|

When incumbent Republican Jean Preston announced that she would not seek re-election to the NC Senate District Two seat, Sanderson announced that he would run for the position. In the primary, he faced Randy Ramsey, a businessman from Beaufort, and Ken Jones who is mayor of Pine Knoll Shores. Sanderson won the primary with 51.86% of the vote. He goes on to face Democrat Greg Muse in the general election.
