North Carolina Republican in disputed Congressional race won’t run again

After a day testifying before the NCSBE, Harris himself called for a new election, which the NCSBE officially ordered a few hours later.

'Given my health situation, the need to regain full strength and the timing of this surgery the last week of March, I have decided not to file in the new election for Congressional District 9, ' he said in a statement.

During a hearing last week before the state elections board, Harris said he has recently suffered two mild strokes.

He led Democrat Dan McCready by 905 votes in the November 6 election, but state officials refused to certify him as the victor because of allegations of irregularities in the vote. Stronger voter I.D. laws have been pushed by Republicans, who say they would increase the integrity of elections, while Democrats have opposed them, saying requiring such forms of I.D. disproportionally prevent Democratic and minority voters from casting ballots. "The most important thing for him to address is his health", Robin Hayes, the group's chairman, said.

"His background and his experience have proven him to stand firm on so numerous issues that concern us, including the issue of life, our national security, and religious freedom", Harris said.

On Facebook, Harris endorsed Union County Commissioner Stony Rushing in the upcoming Republican primary.

Former U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger, whom Harris defeated in last May's primary, on Tuesday told the AP it was "good for the country and the party" that Harris wasn't running.

They instead rallied outside her San Francisco office Friday when Feinstein happened to walk passed them, Cina-Sklar said. She did not say definitively which way she'd vote on the deal, telling one student she could support the measure.

However, in a story filled with twists and turns, political intrigue, and accusations of election theft and impropriety from both sides, the possibility of a McCready challenge to that law may not be off the table yet.

On the stand: Mark Harris pushed for his election to be validated but a hearing on election fraud ended when he conceded that the result was tainted.

A man who initially won a disputed US congressional seat says he's not going to run a second time.

McCready's head attorney, Marc Elias, was dubbed Democrats' "best Election stealing lawyer" by President Donald Trump during the Florida election recounts last November. He tried to spearhead a petition among county commissioners to certify Harris' victory over the state board's concerns.

"It's become clear to me that the public's confidence in the 9th District seat has been undermined to an extent that a new election is warranted".

Perhaps the most distinctive feature of Rushing, however, is his penchant for campaigning dressed up as Boss Hogg, the corrupt local politician who was the bad guy in The Dukes of Hazzard. "But I'm not sure if he would lodge a challenge to it".
