Election Night revealed major victories for Republicans in North Carolina. Republicans won the presidential, congressional delegation, governor, lieutenant governor, N.C. Supreme Court races -- as well as took a supermajority in the state House and Senate. All together it represents a conservative shift in N.C. politics, writes Rob Christensen.
Here's a wrap on the coverage:

--Republicans claim supermajority in state legislature. GOP sweeps N.C. Senate and N.C. House races in Wake County.
