Also Ellmers is ahead of Roche in 2nd CD, but only getting 56% has got to hurt. Clay Aiken looks to be Ellmers’ opponent in November.

In the Senate race, Tillis is the GOPe choice. Brannon is the Tea Party fave and one other that I forget. The trick was keep Tillis below 40% so that there would be a runoff.

Harris was the Tea Party choice, but Brannon was endorsed by Sen. Mike Lee and Rand Paul.

Only 55/56% precincts reporting. I won’t give up hope yet.

I’m in NC and can’t seem to determine which precincts have reported, and which have not. A 6% swing with 58% of precincts reporting is not impossible, but it’s doubtful if urban and eastern precincts are yet to report. Anti-establishment sentiment is typically more of a Piedmont and Western thing, and more rural and outer suburban than urban. Suburbs are a tossup and hinge upon relative prosperity or being stressed economically.

I remember Cucinelli’s collapse at the end of Virginia’s results.

It’s unforgivable if NC puts Tillis up against Hagan. He deserves to lose in the general.

Go to the link and select a county and it’ll give you the number of precincts
reporting. You may even be able to get more detailed, I don’t know.

And it looks like he’s going to get it. This is a travesty. A victory for Karl Rove. It will only encourage his donors to help him destroy conservatives across the country.

Cuccinelli set a very broad example. He brought in Ron Paul to try to court the fake-RAT Libertarian’s votes, instead of Ted or Sarah.

He’d be Gov. if he’d courted his base instead of Paul’s.

The county clerks’ office can affect the way the count is reported, if they submit accidentally an empty file, etc.

Or maybe they submit a file somebody doesn’t like, a file that has to be ‘fixed’.

General impression is that Harris is the one keeping Tillis at or below the 40% threshold where it appears to be occurring, rather than Brannon. Brannon is stronger overall than Harris but holds an outright lead in only one or two counties, none especially large, whereas Harris has a couple of the more populated ones.

“That’s right, 40% is Tillis’ magic number tonight.”

So basically the tea party faves split the vote and the GOPe candidate won.

Areas will mean a lot. I’ve notice for example that Wake Cty is almost complete,

to go and I don’t know anything about the coast.

A spokesman from the NCSBE says initial numbers for precincts reporting were negatively affected by a “display error.”

“The underlying data remains valid and publicly available,” he told WBTV.

Results started to change around 8:40 p.m. on Tuesday night.

If we don’t force him into a runoff, I am seriously considering sitting out the cycle. This is the Rove hand at work, and McConnell’s infamous promise to “crush” us in every state. So disgusting that this troll Tillis could get elected. He thinks Obamacare is a ‘good idea’. How dumb to Republican voters in NC have to be?

Very depressed right now.

That's bunk. I don't know how popular you think those two are, but I can't imagine Palin being a positive in a general election in a two-time Obama state. As for Cruz, I doubt a significant portion of the Virginia electorate knows who he is.
