At the moment, it appears what I posted this a.m. will be the result. 1 win for the Ds in NC CD 9 and 1 win for the RWC GOP in NC CD 3 which already has been declared according to your link. Hoping the D in CD 9 holds on so DJT has more egg on HIS face.

Scotland County has a college, thus blue.
I'm surprised that Anson is blue, but glad of it.
No surprise about Union County. I grew up there and so did Jesse Helms.
