President Donald Trump will soon hold a rally in North Carolina in support of Dan Bishop, the Republican running in the ninth district special election called after the first race was tarnished by accusations of absentee ballot fraud.
Looking forward to soon being in North Carolina to hold a big rally for wonderful Dan Bishop, who is running for Congress. His opponent wants Open Borders, Sanctuary Cities, and Socialism. He likes the “Squad” more than North Carolina. Dan has my Full and Complete Endorsement!

The Democrat in the race, Dan McCready, also ran the first time around, losing to Republican Mark Harris by less than 1,000 votes. However, suspicion quickly grew around McCrae Dowless, a Harris campaign operative who had set up a fraudulent absentee ballot scheme.
Dowless has now been indicted by a grand jury, along with a handful of his employees. Harris has protested his ignorance of the plot — though his son testified otherwise — but still bowed out of the special election, citing his poor health.
