North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis claimed reelection victory on Tuesday night over Democrat challenger Cal Cunningham. The battleground Senate race, as well as the state’s presidential pick, have not yet been called. Mail-in and election day votes are still outstanding, but Sen. Tillis’ campaign felt late on Tuesday night.

Tillis now winning #NCSen by a bigger margin (1.75%) than what he got in 2014 (1.56%).— J. Miles Coleman (@JMilesColeman) November 4, 2020
Cunningham has yet to concede the race. The last stretch of Cunningham’s campaign was stained by an adulterous sex scandal that he refused to publicly address.
Pressure's on @CalforNC to concede.— Matt Whitlock (@mattdizwhitlock) November 4, 2020
He's been hiding from the media for the last month, hoping they'd just go away, gotta wonder if he's hoping the Senate race will just go away too. https://t.co/I50cUwGolc
Someone should tell Cal the press isn’t asking about his multiple affairs anymore and he can answer their questions— Jesse Hunt (@JJHunt10) November 4, 2020
Turns out voters DO care about that he was a serial philanderer and under Army investigation https://t.co/SNQq2LpFyM
