BREAKING: Republican Wins Special Election for House Seat in North Carolina Special Election, NBC News Projects

Republican Dan Bishop defeated Democrat Dan McCready in a special election on Tuesday in North Carolina’s 9th congressional district, NBC News projects.

The race was being closely watched for possible signs of weakness among Republican voters that could have spelled bad news nationally in 2020 for President Donald Trump, who endorsed Bishop and campaigned for him on Monday. A special election was called in the district after last year’s results weren’t certified due to allegations of fraud.
