candidates and their supporters as they wait for the results to start rolling in. and let's begin with the race for the white house. "hillary - clinton" and "donald - trump".... watching the results within 'shouting distance' of each another in new york city. the 'clinton campaign' -- setting-up "post- election shop" -- at the "glass- roofed" -- 'javits center'. she's watching returns at the "peninsula hotel" -- down the street.... ....she 'planned' to shoot-off 'celebratory fireworks'.... but the show has since been 'cancelled'. and the "trump campaign" -- 'hosting' an invitation-only gat "new york hilton midtown". it's just a few blocks from his "trump tower home". the 'hilton' -- 'claims' to have hosted 'every' president since "john - f - kennedy." joel brown is 'tracking returns' -- here in battleground north carolina. joel? this is a road to win 270 electoral votes... north carolina has that crucial 15. this is how the votes are breaking for the candidates,so far, statewide... and here are some early 'county-by-county'
leaning .. clinton 58% trump 37% 197/202 precincts wake of course, the state's 2nd largest... and one that barackobama won with 54% of the vote in 20-12... so hillary clinton outperforming obama, right now. the numbers from durham county... clinton 82% trump 14% durham is overwh clinton actually outperforming barackobama here as well. 40/57 precincts and in cumberland county.. it is .. with the early lead. clinton 57% trump 40% clinton slightly below what obama won in 20-12... trump slightly ahead of romney. 66/77 precincts we are also watching mecklenburg
it's the most populous county in the state.. just ahead of wake. right now it is with the lead.. clinton 65% trump 31% 84/195 so still a lot of votes to be counted in meck-- and most will likely go to clinton. as it stands right now, donald trump with that 5 point lead in north carolina. the overall numbers, here... look awfully close to how they looked 4 years ago... when mitt romney won the state over barack-obama. clinton over- performing in some of the larger population centers. it's still a question... can donald trump hold on to his lead. now what has become the nation's highest- profile
mccrory -- facing a 'tough challenge' -- from democratic attorney general "roy- cooper." the numbers show we have reporters with 'both' candidates. jonah kaplan... with 'pat mccrory' -- at the "crabtree marriott" -- in raleigh. jon camp... with 'roy cooper'... at the "marriott city center" -- in downtown raleigh. let's begin with jon camp...... jon, how's the mood there? until very been a sense here that there could be a real democratic wave in north carolina.. starting at the top with roy cooper for governor. that may be starting to change as the results have been trickling in.. as it settles in just how close this race may be. cooper.. does not have the lead that many of his supporters expected him to have at this point
it because of early voting.. that has all but evaporated. the social issues that many on the left thought would give them a clear edge going into the night may be coming up short as a motivator to get people to the polls. we talked to representative chris sgro from esr. whoalshespl timistic.. tmperedmewhat. ke a . as for cooper himself.. we're told he's still home watching the with his family. no word on when he'll show up. live in raleigh.. jon

we are with both senate campaigns tonight.. we begin at the forsyth country salem.. angelica alvarez there with the burr campaign. are now hours into ballot counting... and people here are anxious for senator burr to arrive and take the podium here tonight... they're also happy he's taken a lead over his opponent deborah ross.
this race is just too close to call. vo: this race has been a virtual tossup in the last few weeks. this is one of the most closely watched races in the country and the wi implications nationally. and dems felt a record turnout during early voting would help their cause tonight. she spent the final hours of her campaign trying to win over voters in one final pitch. her supporters here continue to say ross is the candidate that will bring change to the u-s senate and they are still hoping for a victory.

'technical issues'. troubleshooter diane wilson is in the breaking news center with that story. diane? the 8 durham precincts stayed open later than the 7:30 cut-off due to problem's with the 'voting check-in system'. at some of those precincts earlier today, the computers didn't 'work' right... so they went to 'paper books'. it finally got 'sorted out'... 'and the state board of elections decided to keep those 8 precincts open later, some as little as 15 minutes, some as long as an hour later. we were at several of those durham precincts a handful of voters did take advantage of the extra time. tonight, we did not see any long lines at those 8
