Charlotte Talks: Analysis Of Midterm Vote
Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018
After voters have their say, what are the implications for Washington? For North Carolina? Mike Collins and veteran political watchers break down the results of the midterm.
The midterm election that seems to have been underway since the morning after Donald Trump’s 2016 victory is now in the books.
Democrats recaptured the U.S. House without flipping the North Carolina seats they targeted as part of a "blue wave," including the 9th District race that could head for a recount.
Several Republican legislative seats in Mecklenburg County went to Democrats, breaking the GOP super-majority that has hamstrung Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper.
What message did voters send in the midterm?
