NC GOP slams state elections board: ‘The people of the 9th are tired of waiting’

North Carolina Republicans rallied behind 9th District congressional candidate Mark Harris on Monday ahead of a trial-like hearing on allegations of voter fraud that could nullify his victory.

Republicans asked state elections officials to certify Harris’s disputed election to Congress unless it finds that alleged irregularities would have changed the outcome.

Meanwhile the state board of elections Monday issued guidelines for the Jan. 11 hearing that will feature witnesses and cross-examinations by attorneys. The hearing will take place in the courtroom of the North Carolina State Bar in Raleigh.

Harris’s victory over Democrat Dan McCready in the 9th Congressional District has been clouded by a probe into allegations involving absentee ballots in Bladen County. The state board declined to certify Harris’s election and could order a new election.
