On Tuesday, September 10th, the most important election of 2019 will take place in North Carolina’s 9th district. Democrat Dan McCready has been running continuously for the seat since early 2017. After what appeared to be a 905 vote loss last November, the McCready campaign helped uncover the most significant election fraud in recent political history, which led the NC State Board of Elections to order a new election. Dan’s new opponent is a nationally known homophobe and the author of North Carolina’s notorious “Bathroom Bill.”

A high Democratic turnout on September 10th will give Dan the victory he deserves in NC-09. It will help build the political infrastructure to enable North Carolina Democrats to end gerrymandering, flip a Senate seat, and put the state’s 15 electoral votes in play. Finally, a win in this solid Republican district will send a powerful signal to volunteers and small-dollar donors around the country that Trump’s racist rhetoric can still be beaten, even on Republican turf.
