North Carolina has gone for Obama today. I worked hard for that and even though he already won the Presidency, it makes me feel even better. Thank You North Carolinians!
[NYTimes.com] Mr. Obama’s slight lead of about .2 percentage points over Senator John McCain has expanded over the last several hours to .4 percent, prompting several news organizations to declare him the winner.
The total shows 49.9 percent for Mr. Obama to 49.5 percent for Mr. McCain.
Mr. Obama’s win here caps an extraordinary campaign in the state, which has not voted for a Democrat for president since 1976.
