Image-uploaded-from-iOS--6--2In this election week, our last post is a quick survey of the analysis that is coming out of the primary results in North Carolina. You can find all of the results on the New York Times' handy elections results guide.

Possibly the biggest news that came out of this week's elections was the unseating of incumbent Robert Pittinger for the Congressional seat NC-09. Pittenger is the first Republican Congressional incumbent to lose a primary contest this year, and was defeated by challenger Mark Harris. Harris will face Democrat, Dan McCready, in what may well turn out to be a competitive race in November. For more information, check out Politico's report.

In state races, multiple incumbents also lost their primaries. Find out more from NC Policy Watch.

Politics NC has an interesting write-up of the impact women made on this year's primary.

And finally, the News and Observer's Rob Christensen comments on the increasing ideological polarization of the North Carolina electorate in his column.
