The nation’s political divide was reflected in last night’s Congressional elections.

Legislative redistricting and a possible “Blue Wave” have given Democrats hopes of breaking the supermajorities in the North Carolina House of Representatives and Senate and hopes of winning a majority in one or both chambers of the North Carolina General Assembly. This election year also features a record number of women candidates matching the rise seen nationally.
