The last unsettled congressional race of 2018 may be headed for a rerun, as evidence mounts of election fraud in the Ninth District of North Carolina, which was called for Republican Mark Harris by 905 votes.

After initially charging that Democrats were trying to “steal” the election, the executive director of the state Republican Party said Thursday morning that he would support holding a new election if investigators found enough questionable votes (or missing votes) to potentially reverse the outcome.
The Charlotte Observer has called for a new election and said North Carolina law would allow it.

North Carolina General Statute 163A-1180 authorizes the Board of Elections to intervene and ‘take any other action necessary to assure that an election is determined without taint of fraud or corruption and without irregularities that may have changed the result of an election,’” wrote the Observer editorial staff. “The board should call for a new NC-09 general election.

Apparently the NC GOP is good with that idea--they'd want a new primary too. The guy whose staffer apparently did this stuff was a primary challenge to the sitting congressman. I'll bet most of the NC GOP organization wished they could run their incumbent in the general in the first place. And why shouldn't they? This isn't "NC Republicans cheat" so much as "insurgent candidate wins by cheating; first he won the primary by cheating, then he won the general by cheating."
