Republicans Win Both House Races in North Carolina

1 post in this topic


Republicans managed to successfully hold both seats in the House of Representatives from North Carolina that were up for grabs in special elections Tuesday, marking three consecutive wins in special elections to the House this year.

In the 3rd congressional district, left vacant after the death of incumbent Walter Jones in February, Republican state representative Greg Murphy defeated Democrat Allen Thomas. In the 9th district, Republican state senator Dan Bishop defeated Democrat Dan McCready.

Of these two races, the 9th district was seen as the more competitive, and considered a bellwether for the 2020 presidential election. The seat was held by Congressman Robert Pittenger since 2013, until Pittenger lost the primary in 2018 to pastor Mark Harris.:snip:
