It says almost nothing about what will happen in the General. If you're going to comment on NC politics from down there in Florida, at least educate yourself a little more about it

Nobody related to HB2 was running this time--US Congress has no jurisdiction over state laws. Nonpartisan judicial races were on the ballot, but the preponderance of GOP at the polls is because there was no Democratic ballot at all in most precincts.

Every poll for governor has shown McCrory tied or slightly trailing, though it is obviously early and anything can happen.

In other words, there's still time for Obama to try to push his "social justice" legacy even farther, alienating and upsetting just enough North Carolinians to get out to the polls and squash Cooper in November.

Which turns out to be these two.
Then I shall negate you in November

Edmunds got more votes than both democratic challengers combined in the judicial race. If they'd actually tried to make a coordinated effort to turn out, they could've claimed both spots in the general election with their candidates, and guaranteed themselves a win, and with it a chance to break out of their gerrymandered electoral prison in the state.

But no... NC Democrats are about as organized as a bunch of cats wrapped in a hammock.

No need to be snarky.

The link provided by another member shows plenty of democrats and in all but one race, republican votes vastly outnumber democrat votes. Kind of the opposite of this particular forum.

Make of it what you will.

However according to Pastor Mark Harris, his district (9th) had a huge turnout and is going to file for a recount
he lost by a 100 and some votes to Pittenger.
If he is elected, HB2 and A-1 could be bills on the federal level.
For outsider knowledge, his preachings mimic the style of Westboro Church.

Definitely, low voter turnout for Mecklenburg as it mostly in newly formed 12 districts and they elects incumbent Alma Adams who doesn't even live in Mecklenburg, (she lives in Greensboro.

13 district was totally moved, with no incumbents and it represents Iredell, Davie, Rowan, Davidson, and Guildford.
Out of 17 candidates, a Davie County candidate won, not knocking the county as Mocksville is cute just thought it was wild.


It also will be interesting this general election as some seasoned voters will be in for a shocker as this state doesnt allow straight ticket voting anymore.
Don't they have a runoff if no one has the majority? I'm expecting to vote again. And I have already voted twice.

I have never heard Mark Harris preach but I don't believe what you said about his preaching. That statement is beneath what I expect from you. Shame. Shame. Wasn't he pastor at First Baptist? http://www.markharrisforcongress.com/about-mark/

District 10 had 4 Republicans & one Democrat. Unless someone wanted to vote for a Republican, there was no contest. Is that difficult to understand? I don't think so.
