Dare to Dream: The Path to a Democratic Trifecta in North Carolina
Given the deep similarities between our states, watching our northern neighbor steadily trend blue has been tantalizing for Democrats in North Carolina. With the new legislative maps written under court order just for 2020, some in our state are now daring to imagine the prospect of repeating the Virginia trifecta in Raleigh. The 2020 maps still plainly tilt Republican, but they contain a clear and viable path towards a majority for Democrats, given the right magnitude of a Democratic swing. Consolidating North Carolina under Democratic leadership is completely feasible in 2020 — though certainly not easy.
