    The U.S. Supreme Court returns Monday to the issue of race in politics when it hears claims that North Carolina and Virginia packed African-Americans into a small number of voting districts to limit their statewide electoral power. Both cases present challenges to new maps drawn after the 2010 census. In North Carolina the issue is the boundaries for its congressional districts, while in Virginia state legislative districts are contested.

    Republicans had a great night at every level in last month’s elections, but not everyone went home a winner. Governor Pat McCrory trailed in his re-election bid but refused to concede the election, requesting a recount and alleging irregularities in the voting, especially in Durham County. Today McCrory surrendered to the inevitable, and promised to help governor-elect Roy Cooper successfully and quickly transition into the office: North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory conceded the governor’s race Monday, clearing the way for Democrat Roy Cooper to be declared the winner nearly four weeks after Election Day.The win by Cooper, the state’s...

    Raleigh, N.C. After weeks of bitterly contesting the results of the gubernatorial election, Republican Gov. Pat McCrory on Monday conceded the race to Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper. McCrory issued a video statement, saying the state needs to unite behind Cooper moving forward. "Despite continued questions that should be answered regarding the voting process, I personally believe that the majority of our citizens have spoken, and we now should do everything we can to support the 75th governor of North Carolina, Roy Cooper," he said in the statement.

    You Can Be a Certified Duke Marxist. Think about that.No, this is not The Onion, a joke, nor a smear.James Buchanan “Buck” Duke was an industrialist icon; a man who made a fortune in tobacco and textiles. He was a true capitalist that feared God, inspired faith, and was a titan of industry. He funded several of America’s great educational institutions and was a philanthropist beyond measure, but his endowment is now responsible for a program that will certify the next generation of Marxists.- Let that sink in.According to a recent Duke Chronicle article, “Duke has long been known internationally...

    Roxboro, N.C. A caravan of about 20 vehicles organized by the Ku Klux Klan celebrated President-Elect Donald Trump's win with Confederate and American flags Saturday afternoon in Roxboro. Officers blocked several intersections along U.S. Highway 501, so the convoy would move and exit the city quickly. We learned late this afternoon the group wanted to come to Roxboro. I want to thank our law enforcement partners who helped us close intersections so the group could enter and leave the city as fast as possible, Roxboro Police Chief David Hess said in a statement.

Josh Lawson, general counsel for the N.C.

The crimes are Class I felonies.

It remains unclear whether Allison was being interviewed for the job of secretary of the Treasury or was just giving Trump some advice from a free market perspective.Either way, its a breath of fresh air in an era where statism and excessive hubris (the idea that mere politicians and economists can guide, even stimulate a $20-trillion-dollar economy with monetary policy) has reigned for decades.Right after graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the University of North Carolina in 1971, Allison joined...

    Raleigh, N.C. As counties across the state continue to tally provisional ballots, Gov. Pat McCrory on Tuesday formally requested a statewide recount in his contested gubernatorial race with Attorney General Roy Cooper. McCrory's campaign said the recount was filed to "meet the original date statutorily specified, although the formal recount will not occur until after the county boards of election certify their results." "With many outstanding votes yet to be counted for the first time, legal challenges, ballot protests and voter fraud allegations, we must keep open the ability to allow the established recount process to ensure every legal...

    Just when you thought the 2016 election was over, they pull you back in. Or rather, they want to kick you back out. Democrats in North Carolina have begun calling for Governor Pat McCrory to concede his re-election bid against Roy Cooper after coming up 6,500 votes short — and having several recount and challenge bids denied. Thus far, McCrory’s not playing along: McCrory’s challenger Democrat state Attorney General Roy Cooper has said repeatedly that he won the race and received big support from Democratic lawmakers who believe there’s no way McCrory can win.“By any definition, Roy Cooper has...

    A North Carolina prosecutor has asked state and federal investigators to help determine if a 69-year-old Vietnam veteran was fatally shot because he supported Donald Trump. However, the local sheriff says there's no evidence yet to connect the drive-by shooting to the campaign sign in the victim's yard. Vance County Sheriff Peter White says Raymond Harrell died at a Durham hospital Tuesday, nearly a month after he was shot while standing in his doorway. The bullet struck near his rib cage.

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) A military officer testified Monday that he saw another soldier shot in the head during the 2009 search for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who's accused of endangering his comrades when he walked off his post in Afghanistan. The testimony came at a pretrial hearing at which an Army judge also agreed to delay Bergdahl's trial by several months until May 15, 2017. Prosecutors are arguing that the judge should allow evidence of two wounded soldiers' injuries into the case to help them show that Bergdahl's disappearance effectively put other military members in harm's way.

The law limiting LGBT rights appeared to have a substantial role in the Election Day contest between McCrory, who signed the measure and vigorously defended it against boycotts and other protests, and Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper, who called for its repeal.

But Tuesdays results revealed an interesting dynamic: The Republican Senate candidates who rejected President-elect Donald Trump and tried to go it alone were the only ones who ended up losing their races. Overall, there were eight Republican-held seats and one Democrat-held seat that were competitive going into Tuesday night: Illinois, Wisconsin, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Florida, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Missouri. Of the nine Republicans in these competitive races, six of them stood by Trump...

For all the hype about Trumps strength with white voters this year, he actually underperforms Romney with that group in many polls. Case in point: Romney won whites nationally by 20 in 2012 but Trump led them by just 17 in the final Fox News poll. If Hillary holds more or less steady in black support from 2012 and gets a boost in Latino votes and...
