Republicans Win Two Special Congressional Elections in North Carolina

HeadlineSep 11, 2019

In North Carolina, two Republican candidates backed by President Trump won special elections on Tuesday for open congressional seats. Conservative state Senator Dan Bishop narrowly beat Democrat Dan McCready in a special election held after the results of November’s election were thrown out due to Republican election fraud. At a victory celebration on Tuesday, Bishop repeatedly praised President Trump.

Rep.-elect Dan Bishop: “We’re not tired of winning. We’re just getting started winning, because we’re seeing the successful results of President Trump’s agenda.”

In another North Carolina special election, Republican Dr. Greg Murphy was elected to fill the seat of Republican Congressmember Walter Jones, who died in February.
