Dan McCready, the Democratic House candidate in North Carolina‘s 9th district, has officially withdrawn his concession, as he believes that Republican Mark Harris knew about and bankrolled his campaign‘s election fraud.
McCready told Joe Burno of WSOC channel 9, “Over the last week we have seen the criminal activity come to light, and we have seen that my opponent Mark Harris has bankrolled this criminal activity, and so as of today, I am withdrawing my concession to Mark Harris, and I am calling on Mark Harris to tell the American people exactly what he knew and when he knew it.”

Two witnesses have come forward to confess to illegally harvesting absentee ballots for Harris. The witnesses did not know that they were breaking the law. The North Carolina Republican Party executive director is open to a new election being held. Democrats and Republicans have major problems with what Harris, especially because he appears to have cheated in both the Republican primary and the general election.
A new election looks increasingly likely. Prison time for those involved with Harris campaign and Harris himself is growing more possible by the day.
The election in North Carolina‘s 9th district was stolen, and Dan McCready is contesting the result.
