NC House GOP falls short of supermajority, NC Senate GOP gains enough seats
The Republicans in the North Carolina House didn’t quite make it to the supermajority that they wanted on Election Day but they did in the Senate.
The GOP appears to have gained two seats needed in the Senate but to have fallen one short in the House.
The GOP wanted to have a super majority -- holding three-fifths of the seats – to have enough votes to override vetoes by Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper.
Republicans had that power for much of the last decade before court-ordered redistricting took away a few seats in 2020.
