For the first time in more than 3 decades, North Carolina is a blue state. Thursday, President-Elect Barack Obama added 15 electoral votes to his margin of victory. The Associated Press declared Obama the winner after canvassing the state's counties to determine the number of outstanding provisional ballots. That survey found there are not enough remaining ballots for John McCain to close his 13,000 plus vote deficit. Missouri is now the only state that is still too close to call. The last democratic presidential candidate to win North Carolina was Jimmy Carter in 1976.
