Republican Dan Bishop defeated Democrat Dan McCready for a North Carolina congressional seat in a special election scheduled after claims of ballot tampering in 2018. President Trump hosted an election-eve rally in an attempt to put Bishop over the top. http://apne.ws/YsHCqE5
It’s a loss for Dan McCready in #NC09.
It comes down to turnout. Many worked hard for him, but he’d have won with more support.
Canvassing, phone banking, texting, postcarding, sharing info & calls to action: these are our civic duties for the next 14 months.
Two things: Dan McCready put up a hell of a fight and y'all Republicans in North Carolina coming into my comments have no manners and your mamas should be weeping in shame. #NC09
I’m sorry Dem Dan McCready lost a close race today in NC’s D-9. It’s instructive to all of us: get busy starting now. Not one seat - House, Senate or White House - will be anything less than hard-fought & critically important in 2020. Don’t delay participating. This is everything
REMINDER: The Republican who "won" this seat CHEATED to do it.
Now it's up for grabs in an election that's *thisclose.*
The bonus prize if #NC09 elects Dan McCready? #PABPOTUS will be TOTALLY pissed off.
✅ VOTE #McCreadyforNC!!!!!✅
Big surprise Greedy McCready only likes democracy when it benefits him. Really living up to his “country over party” slogan with this one. #ncpol #nc09 https://twitter.com/DerekDlngrFOX46/status/1171549294245142529
If you had told me yesterday McCready (D) would carry Mecklenberg Co. (Bishop's base in Charlotte burbs) by 12.6% after winning it by just 9.5% in 2018, I would've bet he'd win.
But his poor showing among rural Trump Dems (yes, they're a real constituency) cost Dems a pickup.
Reminder that the only reason we're having a special election for #NC09 is due to ballot fraud by a GOP operative. McCReady "lost" by only 1000 votes. Republican has held this since 1963. No reason it should be so close.
There's no other way to say it: McCready (D) has turned in a terrible performance in low-income Robeson Co., where registered Ds outnumber Rs 60%-13% (not a typo) but Trump *won* in 2016.
McCready (D) won Robeson by 15.3% in 2018, but he's only ahead by *3.1%* w/ 92% reporting.
Based on @SteveKornacki analysis of the early vote margins McCready has beaten his early voting margins from '18- a very good sign for him and for Ds. Bishop will need big same day vote margins to win
I've been supporting Dan McCready for over two years and I drove around the district listening to voters and volunteers talk about how they want change in my state.
I'm disappointed but I will never quit.
This isn't about one race.
It's about doing what's right for all of us.
And frankly, it's easy to see a very liberal, coastal Dem presidential nominee performing much worse than McCready (D) and Clinton among these voters.
Dems underestimate how much room there still is to fall with these anti-elite voters at their own peril.
SOLID EFFORT by Dan McCready. Now let's re-group, re-organize and beat the hell out of this GOP in 2020. #NC09
Congrats to Mark Harris for successfully cheating McCready out of this seat. https://twitter.com/ppollingnumbers/status/1171604524076806145
It's hard to understand NC right now. The 2018 Democrat class has achieved nothing. Their agenda polls at under 30%. This is a reliably red district. Democrats could not suck harder if they tried. Trump won this by almost 12 in 2016.
So far anyway, McCready is crushing.
We didn’t win this campaign, but there is no doubt that our efforts over the last 27 months moved our country forward. To all of you who joined our historic effort that nearly flipped this deep red seat, here are my reasons to hold your head high.
The Washington Post has Called the NC09 Race for Bishop. If the numbers stay the same McCready closed Trumps 12% Margin of Victory to just 2%.
A 10% Swing towards the Dems in this Election is huge.
For what it’s worth — before vote came in today, a smart NC person told me if McCready was up by 8000 or more in early vote total, Bishop would not be able to make that up.
McCready was up by 7,373.
