Election projectors were awaiting on mail-in and military ballots to make the final call, though President Trump held a significant lead throughout the week following election day.

Sen. Tillis claimed victory last week over Democrat challenger Cal Cunningham, with a substantial lead that Cunningham was unlikely to overtake.
I am incredibly humbled by the chance to serve the people of North Carolina in the United States Senate for six more years and I pledge to continue keeping my promises and delivering results.
