Good and Bad News: Local, State and National
Henderson Results: Henderson County, heavily leaning Republican, had a great night for all of its candidates. 100% wins. Every vote in Henderson assured the victory for Mark Meadows and Chuck Edwards to overcome the Buncombe progressive votes against them. Thank you to all for volunteering to get this done and for coming to celebrate last night at the Mountain Inn. Supreme Court and Court of Appeals Race Results. Progressive strategy of setting up stalking horse candidate to take votes away from the GOP candidate obviously worked. Very sad that we lost Barbara Jackson (R) and proven constitutionalist. Anita Earls (D) won the NC Supreme Court race giving the NC Supreme Court a 5-2 Dimm majority. Anglin was a Dimm until he changed his party affiliation to R just before the deadline to switch to run for NC Supreme Court. The combined votes for Barbara Jackson (R) and Anglin (fake R) was greater than the votes Earls received. (So why didn't the NCGOP slam NC with ads informing the voters?) GOP Court of Appeals candidates also did not prevail. Troubling, NC is now faced with a majority of progressives in our courts which means we look forward to judicial activism. See here for yourself.
Transylvania County had a good night too! See here
NC Election Results All Counties
National Election Results
The big take away: US Senate gains GOP seats. #RememberKavanaugh ... Joe Manchin (D-VA) was the only Dimm to vote for Kavanaugh and he survived. Testament to supporting #POTUS and the Tump Agenda!
Dimms now control US House Why? Looks like Rs who did not support President Trump, lost. One more nail in Paul Ryan's failed record.

Georgia Gov: Mike Kemp (R) 53% defeats left loon Stacey Abrams (D) 46%. Congrats Georgia! Hard fought by our greatest activists!
In Tennessee, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (54.7%) soundly defeated former Governor Phil Bredesen (43.9%). Despite being behind in the polls for most of the race, she held strong and won an important victory for conservatives.
In Indiana, businessman Mike Braun (52.9%) defeated incumbent Senator Joe Donnelly (43.2%). Braun is an outsider who will bring his real-world experience to Washington to help drain the swamp!
In Missouri, State Attorney General Josh Hawley (51.5%) defeated incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill (45.5%) in one of the closest races in the country. Hawley is a smart, young leader who will fight for our principles and values in Washington.
@SeanHannity: MOST in the media are absolutely clueless. Tonight was a massive win for Donald J. Trump and the people he campaigned for. Remember between the House & Senate, Obama lost 69 seats, Clinton lost 60 seats. The democrats winning the house is meaningless. Stay tuned for my analysis on radio & TV. Great night
