So far, it's good news for all of the Democrats in North Carolina. Kay Hagen (just called the winner on CNN) has 54% in the Senate race, Obama is at 52% and, in the governor's race, Bev Perdue is at 51% (see the results here). All three could win, but Perdue (very narrowly) looks weakest so far. Perhaps that's slightly comforting for Republican Pat McCrory?
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
