When it comes to undecided races, NC District 4 [?] ought to be included here too — Etheridge (D) vs. Ellmers (R). Ellmers upset Etheridge by 2099, but the next morning Sampson County “found” enough “early votes” to close the margin for Etheridge to call for a recount. Ellmers holds a 1600+ vote lead — but this is typical for NC Democrats — they steal elections this way (Chicago has NOTHING on them). This race CANNOT be counted as a “sure thing” and must be regarded as “undecided.” Not sure where it falls in these numbers.
I'm pretty confident Ellmers will hold on to her win over Bob ("Who are YOU?") Etheridge. And I'm also confident that the newly elected, Republican-controlled for the first time in more than a century General Assembly (NC Senate and NC House) will make her district safer when they redraw the lines next year -- most likely by removing that "finger" jutting into minority-heavy southeast Wake County, and attaching it to a Dem district.
