Nice to see a Charlotte Mayor finally win the Governor's race.

Don't mess up Pat or it will be another hundred years before it happens again.

NC looks different. State house/senate expanded R control. Congressional delegation has flipped. Newby wins so the maps probably stay the same.

Federally..it sucks IMO, but it is what it is. ;)

I ended up voting for the libertarian candidate, mostly because of McCrory's support of voter I.D. laws. Otherwise, I'd have probably voted for him.

Aren't the house & senate still pretty much split? Which means nothing is gonna change regardless of who was elected lol

In NC? No. Lot of change going to happen.

Federally? Yes. Same divided Congress so nothing will change. Supreme Ct will go more liberal though.

Yeah, republicans control the state house. McCrory will pretty much be able to do whatever he wants through at least 2014.

I meant federally. I knew things were flipped in NC. And I'm glad, Perdue was atrocious. Her liberal gun law agendas were pissing me off.
