North Carolina is a blue state

Not by much, but officialdom has finally called the election.

I'm a little confused about why the AP called the election and not the NC State Board of Elections. Is the Associated Press suddenly the arbiter? Were they sick of waiting and therefore eager to announce? The state board still has "unofficial" results.

I am very proud of that. :-)

Hoorah for NC!

In Connecticut, the AP complies the official tally based on the polling place reports. I thought this very odd, too. (And more than a little annoying at one point!)

Not yet in MA?
