Key race

The seat opened by retiring Sen. Richard Burr (R) is a key target for both parties in the battle for control of the Senate. Republicans have chosen Rep. Ted Budd as their nominee, an election denier who was backed by Donald Trump in the May primary. Budd is up against Democrat Cheri Beasley, a former state Supreme Court chief justice who would be North Carolina’s first Black Senator.

Budd (R) has won.

U.S. House

North Carolina gained a seat in the redistricting process and the Tar Heel state’s new 13th District is one of the most competitive races this cycle. Redistricting also made the 1st District much more competitive – longtime Democratic Rep. G.K. Butterfield chose to retire after his district was drawn to be less Democratic and the seat is being targeted by both parties.

* Incumbent

The Post estimated the lean of 2022 congressional districts using 2020 presidential results by precinct from Decision Desk HQ and estimates where actual votes at the precinct level were unavailable. Districts classified as “Strong Biden” and “Strong Trump” show where a candidate is estimated to have won by 15 percentage points or more. “Lean Biden” and “Lean Trump” districts had estimated vote margins between five and 15 points. “Close” districts show an estimated margin within five points.
