NC Demo­crat run­ning in new House elec­tion

The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

Demo­crat Dan McCready of North Carolina said Fri­day that he’s run­ning, again, for the coun­try’s last va­cant con­gres­sional seat.

McCready trailed Repub­li­can Mark Har­ris by less than 1,000 votes in the Novem­ber gen­eral elec­tion. But on Thurs­day the state or­dered a new elec­tion for the dis­trict af­ter re­view­ing ev­i­dence of ab­sen­tee bal­lot fraud by oper­a­tives work­ing for Har­ris.

Asked whether any­one should face crim­i­nal charges, McCready said there were a lot of “unan­swered ques­tions.” He also said he wished Har­ris the best as he re­cov­ers from health prob­lems.
