Just like the rest of 2020, the day after the election is somewhat surreal. Of course, the presidential race hasn’t been called yet, with several states still counting, but the statewide races here in North Carolina also provide a lot of intrigue.
First, Republican Dan Forest lost to Democrat incumbent Roy Cooper. Showing a clear deficit in returns for most of the evening, he was never able to make up enough ground to get within striking distance. What happened? That depends on who you ask; but the common refrain is criticism of his campaign strategy (not enough TV commercials), not invigorating enough of the Republican base, and/or being hurt by the politics of COVID.
