Blue NC should be proud of Larry............The State Supreme Court Race is being rigged by the Republicans.......no way that the Democrat candiate is behind.......DWI Doug bits the dust big time in appeals court race.

Anyone know who we're still waiting on?

Buncombe

Should help

We're already overperforming

We're already overperforming in Buncombe. I think we're going to fall short. We did everything we could. The rain didn't help. It's all coming down to Mecklenburg and Cumberland. Also, waiting on Granville. Will be close, but I think we're short about O.5 percent. The ballot and the rain. Hope I'm wrong.
