While there are about a million things going on at once right now, I'm somewhat transfixed by this mayoral race in Charlotte, where Democrat Anthony Foxx is now up by a couple of thousand votes, with only 27 precincts left.
For context, Charlotte is definitely a Democratic-leaning city, but it's had a series of Republican mayors dating back to 1987. This would seem to be an odd year for it to break the Democratic drought, but it is an open-seat race -- Pat McCrory, the current mayor (and Republican gubernatorial nominee in 2008) didn't run again.
