NCDP Statement on Call for New Election in NC-09

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after the State Board of Elections unanimously voted to call a new election in North Carolina’s Ninth congressional district:

“Over an extraordinary four-day hearing, investigators laid out point-by-point how Republican Mark Harris’ campaign funded and directed an elaborate, illegal scheme to steal an election. North Carolina Republicans, following Mark Harris’ lead, repeatedly lied to the people of the Ninth district, silenced their voices, and undermined our entire state’s faith in our democracy. This saga could only have ended in a new election, and we look forward to repairing the harm dealt by Republicans and giving the people of the Ninth district the representative they deserve.”
