Congressman Mark Meadows said he thinks the races will be tight in the battleground state of North Carolina, but expects the GOP will prevail, speaking Tuesday in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation at the Republican National Convention.
“I do think they will want to make America great again,” he said. “It will be very close. I think that because we are a purple state having gone for President Obama one time and in 2012 we went the other way. I think people are really ready for someone who is not part of the establishment and so with that it will bode well for Donald Trump and his team – and I think he wins by three or four points.”
A recent poll conducted by Public Policy Polling has Trump and presumed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton neck-and-neck in the state. North Carolina is a critical win for Republicans if they want to take back the White House this November.
Sen. Richard Burr is currently in a contentious race against Democrat Deborah Ross, a lawyer and politician in the state, but Meadows said he thinks he will manage to easily defeat his challenger.
“Sen. Richard Burr is running a great race, I think he wins by a larger margin – partly because he’s the hometown guy and he’s running a good campaign,” he continued. “So, I think it will pretty much be a Republican sweep coming into November.”
