In a major victory for both President Trump and national Republicans, North Carolina GOP state Sen. Dan Bishop was projected to win a fiercely contested special U.S. House election that was widely seen as a bellwether for the president's chances in the 2020 election.
Another Republican House candidate won a separate special election in a GOP-leaning district elsewhere in North Carolina earlier in the evening -- frustrating Democrats who spent millions trying to avert the clean sweep and fire a warning shot at the president's bow, only to come up well short.
With 99 percent of precincts reporting late Tuesday, Bishop led Democrat Dan McCready by just over 4,100 votes (94,984 to 90,824) in the race to represent the GOP-leaning 9th Congressional District.
