Politics Monday: There's More Than The White House At Stake In The Election
While the presidential race is drawing long lines of early voters and record numbers of mail-in votes, there’s a lot on the line for North Carolina government.
The biggest battleground in state politics might be in General Assembly, a decade after the Tea Party wave put Republicans in control. The GOP lost its supermajority two years ago, and Democrats are hoping to take control of at least one of the two chambers.
In Mecklenburg County, after two years of exile from the county commission, Republicans are hoping to reestablish a presence on the board.
