Some U.S. House races that were once considered reliably Republican are becoming more competitive, and three of these districts are in North Carolina. 

The Cook Political Report, a non-partisan newsletter, changed the race for the 9th Congressional District in North Carolina from leaning Republican to a tossup. And independents’ dislike for President Donald Trump could affect another House race.

Host Frank Stasio gets an update on Congressional races from WUNC Capitol Bureau Chief Jeff Tiberii. Tiberii takes a look at the candidates and demographics of three districts in North Carolina: the 2nd, the 9th, and the 13th.
