Some very good new today out of North Carolina:
A new WNCT/Emerson College poll shows Democratic challenger Cal Cunningham with a lead over incumbent Sen. Thom Tillis (R) in the North Carolina Senate race.
Monday’s poll asked voters for whom they would case their vote in the North Carolina Senate race if the election were held today.
Cunningham received 48.9 percent while Tillis had 43 percent.
A total of 8.1 percent of those polled said they were undecided.
Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) on Saturday signaled support for President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to fill the Supreme Court vacancy opened by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The North Carolina lawmaker, who is embroiled in a tight reelection battle, argued the situation following Ginsburg’s death is different from 2016, when the Senate GOP blocked President Obama from filling a vacancy on the court in an election year, because the government then was divided.
“Four years ago, a Supreme Court vacancy arose under divided government and a lame-duck president as Americans were choosing his successor. Today, however, President Trump is again facing voters at the ballot box and North Carolinians will ultimately render their judgment on his presidency and how he chooses to fill the vacancy,” he said in a statement.
