In a race straight out of a Parks and Recreation script, Senator Thom Tillis has won re-election to North Carolina’s hotly contested Senate seat.

Democratic challenger Cal Cunningham called the incumbent on Tuesday, one week after Americans went to the polls, to concede the race.

It was a close race, Tillis winning with 48.7 percent of the vote compared to Cunningham’s 47.6 percent.

Cunningham concedes:
