Carolina Journal reports on Tuesday’s election results. Good night for North Carolina Democrats seeking to regain some power in the General Assembly.
State Democrats accomplished a major goal in Tuesday’s midterm election, breaking the Republican Party’s supermajority in the General Assembly. Unofficial results show the GOP, which has a 75-45 advantage in the 2017 session — three votes more than needed to override a veto by Gov. Roy Cooper with a unified caucus — lost nine seats.
Republicans will enter the 2019 session with a 66-54 majority, pending the outcome of several contests.
