|Dear Commons Community,
The last contest of the 2018 Congressional election cycle is being held today in a special election in North Carolina’s 9th District. The State Board of Elections ordered up a new election after credible allegations of ballot fraud emerged during the 2018 contest. That’s why Republican Dan Bishop is facing off against Democrat Dan McCready today. It’s a heavily GOP district, but it looks like the race could be close. So, everyone is watching this one to see whether the Democrats can continue the success they enjoyed in the 2018 midterms or whether the popularity of President Trump — who rallied there last night — is still strong enough in a Southern state to help a GOP candidate win the day.
The results will be interesting especially if the Democrat McCready wins.
