If Democrats are seeking solace on a rough election night for the party, one place to look is Charlotte. From the Charlotte Observer:
Anthony Foxx was elected mayor of Charlotte on Tuesday, defeating John Lassiter and putting a Democrat in the city's top elected position for the first time in 22 years.
Lassiter conceded to Foxx shortly before 10:15 p.m., even taking a phone call from the winner while giving his concession speech on live TV.
With unofficial returns from 168 of the city's 169 precincts, Foxx had 51.3 percent of the vote, to 48.6 percent for Lassiter. A margin of about 3,000 votes out of more than 106,000 separated the two men.
Then again, the party may not need solace from Charlotte, if the NY-23 results hold.
