Here’s the latest news out of North Carolina:
Democrat Dan McCready has a narrow advantage over Republican Dan Bishop heading into the final days of the Sept. 10 redo election in North Carolina’s 9th District, according to a new bipartisan poll for Inside Elections.
The survey, conducted from Monday through Wednesday by Harper Polling and Clarity Campaign Labs, showed McCready ahead of Bishop, 46 percent to 42 percent, with two third-party candidates receiving a combined 3 percent. Some 8 percent of voters were “unsure” and the survey had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.19 percentage points.
When voters who were leaning toward one candidate were included, McCready’s advantage extended to 49-44 percent.
And VoteVets is helping McCready cross the finish line. Here’s an e-mail I received today from VoteVets:
In just a moment, I am going to ask you to make a contribution to VoteVets ahead of tomorrow’s end of month fundraising deadline. Give me a chance to explain why this request is so important.
There’s something you should know about tomorrow’s deadline:
In two weeks, there’s a special election in North Carolina. And VoteVets is one of the few organizations on the air supporting progressive Marine veteran, DanMcCready.
This is going to be a close race. One we can win. But if we’re going to be able to do more, we’ll need your help to get it done. So here’s where we have to ask:
Dan McCready can win this race — the first one of the 2020 cycle. So let’s do what we can to elect someone who will serve honorably while setting the stage for the rest of the cycle.
All our best,
The team at VoteVets
