This is what happens when a state party is swept in on a wave and not through hard work. The entirety of the NCGOP is incompetent, and doesn't realize that the Dems still had parts of the Gov from back when it was a solid Dem state. They played risky, went all in, and in the end, the Dems had a flush.

When NC GOP loses their super majority in November, they're then going to lose their gerrymandered districts in 2020. NC GOP on suicide watch.

NCGOP is finished

RIP NC GOP.

RIP meaning "Rest In Pain".

They only need to control the legislature in 2021 to pass new gerrymanders. The Governor unfortunately has no say in the redistricting process.

The only thing that can stop them is losing at least one chamber. It would take a pretty big landslide in the legislative popular vote to do that. The best path forward is if they lose their super-majority this November and the state Supreme Court then later overturns the legislative maps. Then Democrats might have a shot in 2020. But the GA might try to expand the state Supreme Court if that constitutional amendment passes in November that essentially lets them fill judicial vacancies.
After all the f***ups the NCGOP has made, I doubt the GOP will have much power in the state after 2020.

First, the supreme court is now heavily against them. It was slightly against them before, but due to sheer incompetency, the Dems will pick up a seat. The Rs are splitting the vote against one D judge, a problem they would have avoided if they had just not tampered with the rules.

The amendments are unlikely to pass now as well. They may have been able to pass them thanks to clueless voters, but now there is a citation for all the amendments, written by a mostly Dem committee. Combine this with the predicted victory of about 8 points that polls have gotten for the legislature, and I doubt these things pass anymore.

After 2018, with the loss of a super majority, the Dem Governor will finally have some bite to his bark, and the SC is likely to redraw the districts, if the SCOTUS doesnt interfere. They didnt in PA, so I doubt they will in this case. With fairer districts, the GOP will lose big time, maybe even handing the chambers to the Democrats, giving a trifecta to the state, with an extremely sympathetic SC to back them up.

If they had just done nothing, then there would have likely been a tossup for the seat, and continued control of the legislature. But, just like with the bathroom bill, the NCGOP pushed to far, to fast, and now their chance at total domination has turned into a brutal slaughter. Serves them right, in my opinion.

At this point, the NCGOP has made so many mistakes that I doubt even writing the language for the thing will help.

The Dems will likely break the supermajority at this rate, and if Mondale is correct, get close to/ win a majority in either chamber.

They just retroactively passed a law stripping Chris Anglin of his Republican affiliation because of his threat to the incumbent Republican: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/07/north-carolina-republicans-pass-bill-to-strip-state-supreme-court-candidate-chris-anglin-of-his-gop-affiliation.html



TBH, the NCGOP is going to lose this race, its just too much of a D year. The fact that they listed partisan affiliation will be the nail in the coffin. NC will see a 5-2 D SC next year.

Just goes to show you that your bad actions will catch up with you sooner or later.
Pretty sure that sentence can sum up the NCGOP after the bathroom bill was introduced.

The NCGOP is having the worst of luck.

Im still sure that the court has enough evidence to scrap the map made by the legislature, but the Senate Ds are really not helping.
