Democrats flipped House seats all over the country, but here in North Carolina, where all right-minded people are Southern Baptists who know it all went wrong when a talking snake tricked a gullible woman into stealing a bad piece of fruit, a Baptist pastor flipped a Democratic seat.
Democratic candidate Dan McCready conceded to Republican opponent Mark Harris in North Carolina’s District 9 race Wednesday evening.
McCready did not make an announcement after Tuesday’s election. At midnight, the race was separated by just under 2,000 votes.

Mark Harris, former pastor of First Baptist Church in Charlotte, defeated incumbent Robert Pittenger in the Republican primary for the 9th District seat in May.
Notice that: The Republicans refused to re-nominate the incumbent and gave the nomination to an untried candidate, a pastor, who (barely) prevailed. So there you go: Most of America is sick of the Loony Right — but not here in the Tarheel state.
