With the polls closed less than half an hour, signs are strong that two-term Republican Sen. Richard Burr was headed for re-election in one of the most closely watched races.

Turnout in the Tar Heel State was up 400,000 votes over 2012 and the turnout among black voters was down 60,000. Republican turnout was up 150,000 in the most dramatic increase of all over 2012.

"All these things point to Donald Trump carrying our state and Richard Burr winning re-election," former Raleigh mayor and former state GOP Chairman Tom Fetzer told Newsmax. He added that he always felt Democratic Senate hopeful Deborah Ross' background as the onet-ime head of the state ACLU "would just not sell among North Carolinians."

The turnout among the voters in the state would appear to be backing him up.
