A New Election Might Be the Only Way Forward in North Carolina

North Carolina candidate paid $428k to consulting firm linked to alleged ballot tampering

In the midst of all of this, the Democrat who narrowly lost the race, former Marine veteran and renewables investor Dan McCready, has announced he is retracting his concession and vowed to fight for answers.

McCready's move comes after the head of the state Republican Party said he would support a new election in the state's unresolved congressional race if an investigation shows that wrongdoing swayed its outcome.

Subpoenas have been issued for Harris's campaign, Red Dome (the political consulting firm Dowless has worked under), and the campaign of County Sheriff Jim McVicker, who also has paid for Dowless's services.

However, he said that if the investigation shows that the outcome would not have been changed, Republican candidate Harris should be certified the victor.

They point to unusual outcomes in the mail-in ballot totals in previous elections that appeared to benefit Democrats or Republicans, depending on the race and the year.

It's not clear when the North Carolina Board of Elections will take another step in the Harris-McCready election.

Of the 1,300 or so absentee ballot requests Bladen County received, Dowless turned in nearly half of those on behalf of voters.

Although the reds were not significantly troubled, the reds took time to adjust to the pace of the game . Even Burnley's teamsheet revealed five changes of their own.

Specifically there are allegations in Bladen County that absentee ballots were illegally stacked in favor of Harris.

Moments ago, CNN's Jim Sciutto reported that Dallas Woodhouse, the Executive Director of the North Carolina Republican Party since 2015, is now open to a new election in North Carolina's 9th Congressional district.

There are also claims that incomplete ballots were collected and then filled out later, Cohen said.

He also said it's unlikely anyone will be seated to represent North Carolina's 9th District when the new House is sworn in on January 3. One log showed Boyd dropped off only four absentee ballots during the election and that they were from herself, her husband and her husband's parents. The House Administration committee has "full investigative authority to determine the victor", she said. They said neither election boards, appointed by governors from both parties, nor prosecutors have adequately addressed recurring issues in Bladen.

She said "any member-elect can object to the seating and the swearing-in of another member elect".

"This has shaken us to the core", he said. For almost the past decade, Dowless has been hired by state and local candidates to "get out the vote", and his past efforts have also been marked with absentee mail-in ballot irregularities. Dan Bishop, a Charlotte Republican. And with even Woodhouse conceding that a new election might be necessary, Harris's chances of occupying a seat in Congress are beginning, ever-so-gradually, to shrink. "Dowless' efforts were widely known, and we did share our concerns with several people", declining to elaborate on who he spoke to or what he said.

Woodhouse's comments on Thursday stand in contrast to his position earlier in the week when he dismissed the idea of a new election in the Ninth District. Tommy Tucker of Union County.
