North Carolina Midterms 2014

North Carolina Midterm Election Roundup for 2014

Key take-aways:

  • North Carolina made history last night with a new high for midterm voter turn out.
  • Thom Tillis defeated Kay Hagan.
  • Renee Ellmers defeated Clay Aiken.
  • The General Assembly kept a super majority in both houses.
  • Wake County Commissioner races were won by all four Democrats running. Be afraid for your wallet, people. Don’t complain I didn’t warn you about these people when they start to hike your taxes.
  • Chief Justice Mark Martin defeated Judge Ola Lewis.  Other Judicial races were not so good for Republicans.

See my Storify Article, North Carolina Races 2014 , for statistics on these key points.

A breakout of the Wake County Commissioners race will be coming. Stay tuned.
