In North Carolina, The Last Election Of 2018 Is Also The First Election Of 2020

September 10, 2019 / Steve Harrison

President Trump is betting that his political brand will help Republicans keep hold of a North Carolina U.S. House seat in a special election Tuesday. "To stop the far left you must vote in tomorrow's special election," Trump said at a campaign rally in Fayetteville, N.C. Monday night. The rally was held for 9th congressional district Republican candidate, state Sen. Dan Bishop. Bishop promised the crowed, mostly decked out in "Make America Great Again" hats, that he would "defend your values in Washington D.C." Bishop is in a do-over election from last November after North Carolina's State Board of Elections found that a political operative illegally collected absentee mail ballots for the Republican candidate, Mark Harris. The state ordered a new election, which will officially be the last race from the 2018 midterms. Harris isn't running again.
