WASHINGTON (AP) — North Carolina's special election results are flashing 2020 warning signs for Republican President Donald Trump — and also for his Democratic foe, whoever that turns out to be.

Even though Republicans won Tuesday's race for a House seat, the narrow victory for Dan Bishop underscored the president's problems with suburban voters who took a chance on Trump in 2016 but seem to be shifting toward Democrats. In Charlotte's sprawling Mecklenburg County, there was a 14-point swing toward the Democrats, and there are many similar suburbs across Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania battlegrounds that will be key to Trump's reelection.
