If McCready loses the #nc09 special election, it will be because Robeson County — source of abs ballot fraud — will have swung even further against him. If he wins, it will be despite that. Here's the current county comparison. pic.twitter.com/PrIWPyDz3N

AS POLLS CLOSE IN #NC09 –
-NC09 was last held by a Dem in 1963
-Trump won by 12 pts. Romney won by 10.
-Gov Cooper won statewide but lost here by 12
-Despite 2018, there are still 34 GOPers in more competitive districts than this
GOP has put Trump & $5.4m into this.

A strategy that focused on wooing soft Rs and right-leaning Indies instead of driving up turnout of D voters and left leaning Indies came close, but ultimately failed in NC-9.
We'll never know.

If Democrats want to understand how they lost to Trump despite gaining tons of ground in places like Charlotte & the Triangle, they need to visit Robeson County, NC right away.

This again. I don't share the pessimism of those who say it can't be done. Though very challenging, I think it's technically feasible. But what would NOT stack up is the economic case. There is no way such a bridge could bring economic benefits approaching the scale of its cost. https://t.co/Kem2syApBR
