FEATURING CLIFF ALBRIGHT – North Carolina’s Board of Elections on Thursday ordered a new race to fill the seat that had been officially won by Republican Mark Harris. Harris called for the 9th District election himself after it was revealed that a political consultant on his campaign engaged in a deliberate and systematic voter fraud scheme. The 5-person board, in a unanimous vote tossed out the November 2018 results.

Harris says he had suffered from recent strokes as a result of a sepsis infection and that apparently clouded his judgment. His opponent, Democrat Dan McCready is preparing to run again in new election but it seems unlikely that Harris will run. The North Carolina voter fraud scandal has roiled local communities in the state. Earlier in the week Harris’ son John who happens to be a federal prosecutor testified that he warned his father against hiring the political consultant in question.
