Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton won North Carolina's presidential primary Tuesday

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were the big winners in North Carolina's primary election.  For statewide races, the election was notable for having few, if any surprises, as established candidates won up and down the ticket.  Voters also approved by a wide margin a $2 billion bond measure that largely funds higher education infrastructure projects.  WCQS's Jeremy Loeb was joined Wednesday morning by WCQS news director David Hurand and Ashvegas founder Jason Sandford to parse the results.
