From the N.C. Tribune, “It’s safe to say North Carolina saw the expected ‘Red Wave’ in Tuesday’s election. But it was the sort of wave that’s strong enough to knock someone down, but not quite strong enough to drag them completely underwater.”

Unofficial results:

Republican Ted Budd won the race for the U.S. Senate.

Our delegation to the U.S. House appears evenly split with 7 Democrats and 7 Republicans.

Republicans won the two seats up on the N.C. Supreme Court to now have a 5-2 majority. The N.C. Tribune notes that “likely won’t shift back to a Democratic majority until 2028 at the earliest.”

Republicans won all four seats up on the N.C. Court of Appeals.

Republicans won the 30 of 50 seats needed for a supermajority in the N.C. Senate. They appear to be one seat shy of a supermajority in the N.C. House.

Here is the election results dashboard of the N.C. State Board of Elections.

We are working on the school board election results! Stay tuned.
