McCready Withdraws Concession, Says He Thinks Harris Funded ‘Criminal Activity’


Democratic congressional candidate Dan McCready is withdrawing his concession in the race to represent North Carolina’s 9th District, telling local station WSOC that he believes his opponent, Mark Harris, knew a contractor for his campaign bankrolled “criminal activity.”

That contractor, McCrae Dowless, is accused of orchestrating widespread election fraud in order to help Harris. Absentee ballots in some areas are unusually — and improbably — tilted toward the Republican.

In a video statement posted to his Twitter account Thursday, McCready said: “I didn’t serve overseas in the Marine Corps just to come back home and watch politicians and career criminals attack our democracy. That’s why today I withdraw my concession to Mark Harris, who’s remained completely silent, and I call on Mark Harris to tell us exactly what he knew, and when he knew it.”
