Republican Mark Harris, who finished first in the November election but was denied certification due to election fraud allegations that continue to be investigated, announced that he will not compete in the newly ordered special election. This will allow the Republicans to choose a new nominee with a better ability to compete.
Mr. Harris’ reputation was so badly tarnished during the post-election period in addition to his suffering recent health problems, led to the decision of not pursing the congressional seat whenever the new election is scheduled. Mr. Harris endorsed Union County Commissioner Stony Rushing as part of his announcement.
