Political analysts have worked through numerous amounts of general election votes cast in North Carolina's November primaries. Among many conclusions, one reveals that voting in the state is split on the tickets. Ticket-splitting gave Nixon the 13 electoral votes needed , the first Republican president to do so in North Carolina since Herbert Hoover in 1928. While ticket-splitting also awarded the Republican Party a seat in the US House of Representatives, Democratic senators retained their posts and the entire slate of state offices remains Democratic.
The recommended North Carolina state budget for 1969-1971 will most likely reach and/or exceed $3.5 billion. This is an estimate based on the recommended total by the incumbent Governor Dan Moore to Governor-elect Robert Scott. It is additionally estimated that the credit balance for 1969 will exceed $100 million, allowing the incoming Governor to make some adjustments to the budget if needed.
