The most important moment of Clintons North Carolina campaign probably came on August 31, when the Supreme Court restored a week of voting, beginning October 20, which the Republican-led legislature had struck from the calendar. (An appeals court had ruled that the law, which also included provisions requiring voters to present identification and pre-registering teenagers ahead of their eighteenth birthdays, had been drafted to target African Americans with almost surgical precision.) Those restored seven days have proven crucial to the math that makes Democrats newly competitive in North Carolina, where Obama won in 2008, and lost by only 100,000 votes in 2012: more thanone-tenth of the votes Clinton needs to win will come from African Americans who cast ballots during the equivalent period in 2012.

There is a Republican path to victory here almost exclusively through mobilization, but Trumps apparent neglect of a ground organizationat the end of August he had just one field office in the state suggests he is not trying to win that way. Instead, he will hope that the state party, which has both an incumbent governor and senator on the ballot, turns out
