RALEIGH – President Donald Trump has won North Carolina and will carry the state’s 15 electoral votes.
Ballots received by Nov. 12 with a Nov. 3 postmark were allowed to be counted, which delayed the final reporting of results across the state.
Trump led by over 76,000 votes on election night.
“The Old North State chose President Trump’s pro-growth, pro-America message over Joe Biden’s far-left politics of lawlessness and division, Trump Victory spokesperson Gates McGavick said. “Trump Victory’s relentless, statewide ground game coupled with President Trump’s constant presence here and his commitment to this state ensured that North Carolina would stay red.”
The outcome of the presidential race nationally has been subject to recounts and legal action in several states.
