Red Wave Carries GOP Representative Ted Budd To D.C. (Raleigh, NC) -- The GOP still holds North Carolina's Senate seat in Washington. Republican Representative Ted Budd beat out Democrat Cheri Beasley in the U.S. Senate race with more than 50-percent of the vote. Budd's focus on Beasley's "soft on crime" stance while serving as Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court seemed to sway voters in the final months of the election. Budd replaces outgoing U.S. Senator Richard Burr who is retiring after more than two decades in Congress.
