VOTE today if you failed to vote early. NC 9th Congressional race … Dan Bishop (R) & Dan McCready (D) are the major candidates. Hopefully we will have a winner sometime tonight. President Trump was in Fayetteville on Monday night to promote Bishop. The President carried the district by 12 points in 2016 and Mitt Romney (R) won by 12 points in 2012. Both parties are attempting to turn out the vote today for a victory. The district stretches from Mecklenburg (Charlotte) along the North-South Carolina border to Bladen County, actually about half of Bladen County. Some prognosticators think this election may indicate how well President Trump will do next year seeking a second term. To be determined.
One thing well documented, the 9th NC Congressional contest is one of the most expensive political races ever in American politics. More outside money by both parties than ever before. Both parties trying to make a statement.
