In addition to the suburban Wake districts, Mecklenburg County Democrat Rachel Hunt is 71 votes ahead of state Rep. Bill Brawley with one precinct left to report.

Republican Mike Braun captured incumbent Joe Donnelly's seat in Indiana, Republican Kevin Cramer beat incumbent Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota and Republican Josh Hawley defeated Democrat Claire McCaskill in Missouri.

On the other side of the country, in Atlanta, Georgia, voters waited in line for almost two hours to cast ballots, according to local media reports.
Control of Congress is at stake, effectively deciding whether Trump will continue to get a free ride from the current Republican-led legislature or be forced to deal with Democrats that he has spent months deriding as extreme leftists bent on bringing chaos to the United States.
Trump is trying to defy historic omens that suggest that commanders in chief often get a rebuke from voters in the midterm election of their first term.
"Ever since President Trump has been in office, it has just been not the country that I am used to or that I thought I would be in", said Sarah Roth, 22, a Democratic voter from Minnetonka, Minnesota.
Turnout, she said, has everything to do with a campaign's most prominent figures and whether voters who aren't regular participants in the electoral process are more motivated to take part. About 15 percent said that this was the first time they'd voted in a midterm, according to CNN, compared to about 10 percent who said they were first-time voters in the 2016 election. He was active on Twitter throughout much of the day, blasting out endorsements for Republican candidates and weighing in on the balloting.
Striking a dark tone at a rally in IN on Monday evening, Trump accused Democrats without offering any evidence of "openly encouraging millions of illegal aliens to break our laws, violate our borders and overrun our country".

Democrats lost 945 seats in state legislatures across the country during the 2009-2017 presidency of Democrat Barack Obama, the group said. About 2 in 10 each choose the economy and immigration as their top issue, and just 1 in 10 say it's gun policy. The survey is separate from the traditional exit polls for the television networks.
"I'm not on the ballot, but in a certain way, I'm on the ballot", Trump said in October. However, Goodstein believes that the relative silence over the alleged links between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation will be broken again as soon as the Democrats take over the House.

There are too many fundamental differences between electoral systems and cycles in the USA and Canada for this year's stateside turnout to offer any lessons for anyone hoping to generate similar levels of interest north of the border in 2019, Haussman said.
