Cunningham Concedes To US Sen. Tillis In North Carolina

Nov 10, 2020

Democrat Cal Cunningham has conceded to incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis in North Carolina. Cunningham said in a statement Tuesday that “the voters have spoken” and it was clear Tillis had won. Tillis leads Cunningham by 94,500 votes. The race is still too early to call, with votes still uncounted. With Cunningham’s concession, all eyes now turn to Georgia, where two U.S. Senate runoff races in January are likely to determine the balance of the upper chamber. Cunningham accepted defeat even after outraising Tillis during what became the most expensive U.S. Senate race in history.
