The News & Observer’s Andy Specht writes a good survey of Tuesday’s election results and what the Democratic Party wins could mean for North Carolina. Andy picked up on the key perspective offered by JLF President and CEO Kory Swanson:

Kory Swanson, president of the conservative John Locke Foundation, said Republicans should be concerned but can win if they refrain from “ad hominem attacks.”

“They should stay on message — tax reform, regulatory reform, education reform, etc,” Swanson wrote on the Locke website. “In other words, expanding freedom for all North Carolinians. The economy is doing well. Keep focused.”
