Historically, it has served the Republican Party well, especially over the past two decades. North Carolina went red both in 2000 and 2004. But in 2008, North Carolina flipped in favor of the Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, who would go on to win the election in a landslide Electoral College victory over Republican candidate John McCain. It was a narrow victory for Obama in the Tar Heel state as he won by approximately 14,000 votes. North Carolina went back in Republicans’ direction the next election when it the state went to Mitt Romney over the now-incumbent President Barack Obama.
