Majority In U.S. Senate May Come Down To A Close North Carolina Race That Wasn't Supposed To Be
North Carolina U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R) wasn't supposed to have much trouble in being elected to a third term in D.C. But for a myriad of reasons, his race against former state representative and North Carolina ACLU Director Deborah Ross (D) is tight as early voting in the state gets underway. The stakes are high - the winner could end up deciding which party holds the majority in the U.S. Senate. Republicans currently do, after seizing it from Democrats following the 2014 elections. Burr and Ross held their lone debate last week at the UNC-TV studios.
