New Primary and Election Possible in Uncalled North Carolina Congressional Race

HeadlineDec 14, 2018

And in North Carolina, the state Legislature has approved a bill requiring a new primary and election if the state’s election board calls for a revote in the contested 9th Congressional District race. The race pits Republican Mark Harris against Democrat Dan McCready. Harris initially appeared to be the winner, but the race was never certified, after evidence emerged of possible election fraud by Republicans, who are accused of tampering with absentee ballots. Politico is reporting that Republicans may try to run another candidate in place of the scandal-ridden Harris.
