Under the Dome

Obama will win N.C.

An unreported cache of votes in Buncombe County tipped North Carolina for Obama.

The 17,000-vote margin in the mountain home of Asheville helped overcome the 5,000-vote lead that John McCain has had in reported votes by the State Board of Elections.

The final numbers would be 49.7 percent for Obama, 49.4 percent for McCain.

The 10,000 vote difference is a little less than the number of write-in votes cast for president and even slimmer than the 0.8 percent win by President George H.W. Bush here in 1992.

Re: Obama will win N.C.

Turn it Blue baby!!! My desires have been achieved this night, victories for Perdue, Hagan and Obama, and Obama turning NC blue. Now, if the other holdouts will make it a landslide....I love it!!!

I'm almost more proud of my state than the country. Go Obama and God bless the USA and the Tar Heel State!!

Has NC become a blue state?
