North Carolina results for every midterm race
North Carolina is going ahead with November elections under its current gerrymandered map because there isn’t enough time to redraw new districts.
Democrats had been hoping they could pull off a number of upsets in the purple state, which has gradually gotten more Democratic over the years. But Republicans pulled off such a thoroughly partisan gerrymandered congressional map that Democrats will likely have to tamp down their expectations. Last month, a panel of judges in the state ruled the maps were an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander, but said there wasn’t enough time to draw new maps before Nov. 6.
Under these circumstances, Democrats are focused on two districts that are rated toss-ups by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. The first is North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District, with Dan McCready (D) and Mark Harris (R) running after Harris defeated incumbent Rep. Robert Pittenger in the primary.
Another Cook-rated toss-up is the 13th Congressional District, where Kathy Manning (D) is running against Rep. Ted Budd (R). The state also has a number of ballot initiatives, including an attempt to put a controversial, failed voter ID bill into the state constitution.
North Carolina’s state legislature is controlled by Republicans, and Daily Kos doesn’t expect that to change even though every seat in both chambers is on the ballot today.
Morning Consult finds President Trump’s approval rating here pretty evenly split, reflecting its purpleness.
