Harris' statement, just before cross-examination was to begin.

Maybe I'm misremembering, but didn't Harris take out the incumbent in the primary? Has he (the incumbent) had anything to say about problems with the primary election? If he's interested, can the NC GOP just nominate him and skip the primary?

NC recently changed election law, and now requires a primary when a new election is ordered.

Changed it after the election? I am willing to bet there will be some litigation over whether that applies to retroactively or not. :thumbs:

I wonder if, after all that came out at the hearing, Harris might be one of the folks facing charges :think:

Based on what I read on Twitter yesterday, I'm fairly certain that there is already a criminal investigation into McCrae Dowless' actions.

I wonder if Harris will face a criminal investigation.

538: North Carolina’s Do-Over U.S. House Election Starts Tuesday:
The residents of North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District have gone more than four months without representation in the U.S. House after the North Carolina State Board of Elections declined to certify the 2018 election because of allegations of election fraud. On Tuesday, the district, which stretches from Fayetteville to the eastern Charlotte suburbs, will take its first step toward filling that empty seat when it goes to the polls for the primaries.

After hearing evidence that a campaign consultant for 2018 Republican candidate Mark Harris oversaw an effort to cast absentee ballots illegally, the board called a do-over election. Harris decided not to run again, but the 2018 Democratic candidate, Dan McCready, who lost the initial election by just 905 votes, stayed in the race. The Marine veteran is running unopposed in the Democratic primary and has already raised more than $2 million. He should be a formidable opponent for the eventual GOP nominee in the general election.

Ten candidates are vying to be that nominee, four of whom look like serious contenders.

First up is state Sen. Dan Bishop. According to a Public Policy Polling survey of likely Republican voters from late April, Bishop was in the lead with 31 percent, which was 14 points ahead of the second-place candidate (21 percent of voters were still undecided). That would be enough for Bishop to advance straight to the general election without a Sept. 10 runoff. (Under North Carolina law, if no candidate receives at least 30 percent of the vote, the second-place finisher is entitled to force a primary runoff.) Bishop also leads all Republican candidates in fundraising, with more than $500,000 raised as of April 24, although half of that he loaned to his campaign.

Bishop is probably best known as a sponsor of North Carolina’s HB 2, aka the “bathroom bill,” which required people to use public bathroom facilities that matched the gender on their birth certificate.

The winner of the R Primary do over is the guy who sponsored the “bathroom bill” that led to a boycott of NC and an estimated loss of $3.7B and was later over turned.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Republican voters nominate N.C. state lawmaker who sponsored controversial ‘bathroom bill’ in 9th Congressional District race
