race tonight at all. >> yes, and i don't have the answer for you there either, i wish i did. it may be a long night, but it will be a night worth sticking through and we're excited about the promising numbers, again it's too close to call, but you can feel the tension in the room, and these folks are really excited to welcome their governor right here at the marriott and tell him thank you for the last four years and tell him we want four more. >> reporter: when we will see him in the bi i appreciate it. and that really has been the stortonight. when we'll have some definitive answers in all of this. in e meti it's very stressful room. people really following again every one of the updates. we've said this would be a close race. the republican officials here with the state thought it would be close race, and that's exactly what we have tonight. >> that's why many people don't have the stomach for politics [ laughter ] >> good point.

the polls tonight have indicated that this is a close race, and tonight we're seeing that close race play out each and every minute and each and every hour. i got to talk to the communications director for the cooper campaign, and here's what he had to say about the candidate tonight. >> he's been loose the last couple of weeks. he's been great, traveling around the state. yesterday he was in wilmin and charlotte. y he did nine early votes. we're seeing the enthusiasm and think it's going to be a tight race. we're feeling really good. >> reporter: and it is going to be a tight race and a very long night here, and it looks like people are settling in. it's like a party atmosphere here. the music is going, people are milling around and talking. back to you. >> all right, ken smith live at the democratic headquarters in raleigh. and this was breaking news earlier this evening. because of the voting issues

in anticipation that burr will show up and take the stage at some point soon. again the energy is just electric. they're just absolutely electric. take a look at some of the this video from earlier. the crowd gathering around the tv, gathering around their phones. they are absolutely excited, feeling very, very confident right and going to take the race. we said and reviewed where he stands opposed to his opponent deborah ross on key issues like immigration and education, the judicial system. they're almost polar opposites on those issues. take a listen at what one of his campaign managers said earlier today. >> we always viewed this as a competitive race because it's a
be one that was looked at as being competitive as far as the overlook of the entire senate landscape. and what you've seen is senator burr lay out clear contrasts between he and deborah ross. >> reporter: and again we are getting word that fox is calling this race for burr. people cheering and starting to gather around the podium. we're told senator burr won't show until he knows for sure how the race stands and where it's ending, so we're anticipating his arrival some time soon, scoop we'll hear from him -- soon, and we'll hear from him shortly. >> candace sweat live with richard burr's campaign, and we've not quite called the race. we'll keep you updated. >> deborah ross is spending her night at the democratic campaign headquarters. >> amanda lamb is live with the
>> repte dorahoss has been watching the returns fr this race in hehotel room in downtown raleigh. we've not heard from her or seen her this evening, but as you said this race, burr has pulled ahead, and it definitely looks like there's a chance he could win this ce, and i know fox is calling it. we haven't called it yet, but a lot of concern from supporters in the crowd. people that say she's a sm candidate, ethical candidate, hardworking candidate, and is facing an opponent with a lot of experience. senator burr has been in dc for 22 years, and her supporters amphetamine like it was time for a change. >> it's clear the people of north carolina are ready for a change, someone who puts them first and works for them and shares their values. burr spend over 20 years in washington working for himself
>> reporter: now, we just understood that we are officially now calling this race for senator burr. deborah ross has lost the race a few seconds ago. that came up on the screen here, and the crowd here of course is very disappointed. a lot of booing because they say that it was time for a change in washington, and they really felt like deborah ross was the person to go to washington and make that change, but we now understand she has will look forward to hearing from her at the podium when she comes down to, you know, talk to her supporters here in the crowd. back to you. >> all right, amanda lamb live at the democratic headquarters in raleigh tonight. that's tough. new information for them there. >> absolutely. of course this is burr's final term in the us senate. he said this is the last time he's running for that office. we have a lot more election 2016 coverage ahead. still waiting to hear from richard burr and deborah ross. >> and we'll also check back in

dale folwall is in the lead. he's a cpa and former state representative. the race for attorney general, this has been close for a lot of the night, but buck newton pulled ahead with 2.1 million votes. he's a north carolina senator on the judiciary committee and an attorney. and the superintendent of public instruction, that has become a very tight race as well. june atkinson in the position right now, but wilson is he's on the school board and an educator. now to auditor. for tight race here, but chuck stuber is pulling ahead. he's a retired fbi agent. moving ahead to the commissioner of labor. sherry barry, looks like she'll continue her role in the position. 2.3million votes. she's been the commissioner since 2001. former state representative and former business owner.
commissioner of agriculture. steve trotser looks like he'll maintain his position. and commissioner of insurance, another very tight race, but mike causey an interesting race. he's a retired insurance agent, but this is his fifth time nning for office and he's also a lobbiest. so far that's how the council of sit playing out, and we'll continue to >> >. republican sweep there. and the democrats set up their headquarters in downtown raleigh to watch the results. bryan mims is live with them, and right now the numbers not looking too good. >> reporter: yes, we heard a big groan projecting donald trump as the winner of ohio, and nbc news projected that richard burr has won the senate
too. it's a rather subdued crowd. that's safe to say. they're standing watching the results, watching the results right now, and they are kind of muted right now. we haven't heard many shouts or cheers in the last little while. as a matter of fact i heard one supporter just before the air saying give us some good news. we haven't seen any of the candidates yet, but we'll keep monitoring the results and let you know how the mood is here among the democrats. back to you. >> all right, bryan mims, thank you. north carolina's republican party also watching the numbers
raleigh, and sloane heffernan is there tonight and a much different mood at this point in the night. >> reporter: yes, there may be groans on e democratic side, but there are cheers here at the republican headquarters, here's the executive of the party i like to call him the grand poobah. >> do i get a little hat like fred flint stone? >> reporter: we're covering the council of state race, and right now technically republicans are winning every single race with the exception of the secretary of state, and you even admitted to me just a minute ago that some of these races the republicans are actually overperforming. what's your reaction to this? >> well i ain't unhappy. i think, you know one of the things that irritated me all year is the talk about the superior clinton ground game. the republicans had a pretty
that's something our partners did, and donald trump is going to win north carolina. pat mccrory is very close, but i believe he will win. the lieutenant governor has been re-elected. no question about that. we're going to hold the incumbents down the ballot. we're going to have the next treasurer. we're way up in that, and we may pick up the auditor and a couple more. very close in the attorney general race. i'll give it's been roughly, except for the auditor, and that's a little different because he didn't have much of a constituency. it's been nearly four decades since an incumbent council of state, down ballot council of state member has been defeated. i believe the last one was democrat john brooks in the labor commissioner race after the horrible chicken fire.
we're slated right now to either break even or possibly pick up seats in the state legislature. it's a phenomenal thing. >> reporter: it's looking good according to one of the speakers just up there. looking to be a great night he said for the republican party. greg to of the gop, thank you for -- director of the gop, thank you for joining us tonight. and not a lot of disappointment here, just a lot far tonight. but of course a lot of votes still haven't been counted, and we'll continue to be here throughout the night. back to you. >> sloane heffernan live at the republican headquarters in raleigh. tonight's election impacting the balance of power in the north carolina legislature. >> david crabtree and laura leslie have a closer look at the changes and what it means. >> yes, and one of the things we have to wait on is all of
still possibilities of votes that haven't -- pockets of votes that still haven't come in, but first the balance of power in the senate. republicans lead, and here in wake county we don't see a reason for that to change. >> right, but we do have to reiterate we have pockets of state without the answers. >> yeah, and moving along to the house, it could be a little let's pull this up. right now 74 to 45, and it represents the veto-proof number, bullet the democrats are shave can be but the democrats look like they've -- but the democrats look like they're shaving the number. in wake county two seats have changed. >> yes, it appears, because they're provisional results, we
provisional ballots say, wait for the final canvass in the cases so close, but the democratic challenger joe john, and representative gary pendleton may have lost his race. both very close, but on the other hand you see the one down here, an independent in deer county. republicans thought earlier this year they'd lose to democrat, but as it turns out it looks like the republicans take over the seat so that may have been what it was they were talking about. if that's all that changes it's 73, still a veto-proof majority. >> and we're continuing to watch the races. at 11:00 tonight we'll have more on the races in the legislature, but we know in the races where there's been a flip or appears to be a flip and a
razor thin wins, it appears house bill 2 impacted the races. >> it may havism pacted a couple -- may have impacted a couple of race, but a coupleof others expected to be close weren't close. >> all right, we'll be back later in the newscast. gerald and linda, back to you. >> thank you. this may be the most historic election of our time. not only is north carolina and the nation waiting to see happens, the world is also watching. still ahead we'll look at where the congressional races stand and we'll take another look at what's going on at the campaign headquarters in new york. clouds increasing across the area this evening, and check out the regional radar view. rain is on the way. we'll check out the time line of the arrival, and what happens when it passes coming
>> and we want to look at the north carolina congressional races, district 1, butterfield the incumbent. , district 2, mcneil holding, beat elmers in the primary. obviously this is clearly slanted toward holding. whoops and now price the democrat is winning, this is in district 4. that's orange and wake counties. on to district 6. glidewell, an army veteran, awarded the bronze star in vietnam.
the incumbent with the lead. district 7, this includes johnston county, wayne county, and samson county, and district 9, the incumbent with the lead over cano. burr is getting ready to address his supporters in raleigh. we're going live. do we have >> i'm grateful for the work we do for north carolina, and there are no two senators from any state that work closer than tom and i do, and i'm grateful for that [ applause ] >> tonight i am truly humbled by the support ifs receiverred from people across the state. it's an honor to be elected to
states senate. this is for those that believe in me and continue to have confidence in the fa that my values match your values, and for that i'm grateful. [ applause ] and i have to give thanks first and foremost to my family. [ applause ] >> their support and understandinas them through this. campaigns and being away from town so much. it's unbelievable. i could have never accomplished even a fraction of what i've done witho the strength and help i get everybody day from my -- every day from my wife
>> it goeshoutsayi my children have grown up with it. e was 8, one was when i went to congress for the first time, and for many, the outcome wasn't that good. for me, i'm able to look at two adults that have grown up to be great contributors to the communities that they live in. >> richard burr addressing supports, reelected to his third and final term at us senator from north carolina. still waiting for deborah ross to address little different mood in that room of course. >> absolutely. >> decision 2016 is for from over. just ahead we break down how counties in north carolina voted in this election. >> our election night coverage continues right have you done anything out of the ordinary recently? we bought a new washer and dryer from the home improvement store. i'm afraid you're suffering from fobo. fobo? fobo. fobo... fear of better options. cure fobo with black friday savings now at hhgregg.

precincts have been counted. we know that. these are some of the numbers we have. these have just been updated. they haven't made it to the screen yet. both of the candidates now have over 2 million votes each in north carolina. about 7 percent of the precincts are still ou yet this state still hasn't been called, and when you look at the map you see the possibilities of the urban -- pockets of urban areas going for hillary clinton. a lot of trump supporters in the rest of the state. >> and we're still trying to get information, but what we can say at this point is we know some of the counties with the slower reporting have been coties that tend to be heavily democratic. now whether or not there are enough democratic votes out there to change the outcome of the races, we don't know that yet because we're still trying to determine exactly where those are, but no real big surprises here in the race for president. the counties that often do vote
this case, mecklenburg county, triad county areas. >> but look at this part of state. >> yes, solid red. >> we've seen democratic votes from wilmington that we didn't see tonight. >> and i think that's a trump factor right there because he spent a lot of time campaigning in this area right there. so you, know, he pretty much was all over, he and pence all over the southeast part of state, and i think you're seeing that pay off for him. now looking at how things are shaking out for race. want to have a look at that, state view, i think we'll see pretty much the same pattern. state view. >> there we go. 's going to come forward. >> or it's not. anyway. >> you can't see, but there's a little bit of blue there that i was talking about earlier that we didn't see in the race for the presidency that we're seeing in the race for governor. >> and again, that's the effect of campaigning that, you know,
think sometimes there's a tendency to forget how much it matters when you're blanketing part of a region with rallies. last but not least a quick look at the us senate. or try to see if we can get a state view up. can we? >> there we go. >> and this one looks a lot like the presidential. you'll see the also watauga is not there, doesn't look like it went for ross, but basicay prettyuch the same as we're seeing in the presidential race. >> there have been some surprises here as we were talking with bruce thompson on wral 2, and bruce was the clinton treasurer in north carolina. >> right. >> they' bven a little surprised at the turnout and intensity of the turnout they say.
where they were at this time tonight. >> it is getting increasingly hard to see where the votes would be for hillary clinton to win the state at this point. at this point it's not impossible, but looking more and more improbable as the minutes go by. >> and we'll be back in the next hour. the numbers will be upted then. a lot more sings then,ut ba lot of race -- precincts then, but a lot race, we may t know until well past >> we may t know willbe, but we'll be here tbring it to u. >> all right, dave, thank you. >> -- david thank you. >> we have it all covered fo you tonight no matter how long it takes. >> plus mike maze ins us with
