Bishop Beats McCready in North Carolina Special Election

Republican Dan Bishop beat Democrat Dan McCready in a close special election race held in North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District on Tuesday.

Bishop beat McCready by about 2 percentage points, according to NBC. Both candidates spent massive amounts of money campaigning, after a mishandling of absentee ballots in the 2018 election determined the need for a special election in 2019. At the time, Republican nominee Mark Harris led McCready by a slim margin.

Many commentators advertised the outcome of the 2019 special election as a bellwether for the 2020 presidential election.
