State Senator Dan Bishop wins the GOP primary for NC’s District 9 congressional election.

North Carolina —NC State Senator Dan Bishop handily won the GOP primary for NC’s District 9 congressional election with 47% of the vote.

Ten Republicans were vying for the nomination. They ranged from first-time candidates to elected officials.

District 9 residents went more than four months without representation in the U.S. House after the State Board of Elections refused to certify Republican Mark Harris as the winner due to allegations of election fraud. On Tuesday’s ballot for the Republican party were Stevie Rivenbark Hull, Matthew Ridenhour, Stony Rushing, Fern Shubert, Albert Lee Wiley, Jr., Chris Anglin, Leigh Thomas Brown, Kathie C. Day, and Gary Dunn.

Republican and unaffiliated voters in the 9th congressional district casted ballots in person after two weeks of early voting to decide which GOP candidate will face Democrat Dan McCready in the fall.

Bishop is noteworthy as he was a sponsor of the state’s bathroom bill. H
