NCDP Statement on President Trump’s Rally Ahead of NC-09 Special Election

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement on President Trump’s and Vice President Pence’s visits to North Carolina ahead of Tuesday’s special election for the 9th congressional district:

“The President and Vice President are in North Carolina today desperately trying to save a seat they won by double-digits in 2016. This race is neck-and-neck precisely because Dan McCready is bringing people together by speaking to pocketbook issues like lowering health care costs and improving our public schools and because career politician Dan Bishop’s agenda of voting against expanding access to health care and standing with Big Pharma to keep drug prices high is wrong for North Carolina.

“After Republicans tried to steal this election by targeting the elderly, African-American, and Native American voters through the largest case of election fraud in modern history, Dan McCready chose to fight. That’s why North Carolina will send him to Congress tomorrow.”
