"A razor-thin margin of nine hundred five votes but the reason we don't have official results from last year's race and the reason isn't this do over election is even happening is because the state elections board throughout the results from last year after evidence emerged that consultant tied to the republicans campaign allegedly allegedly committed extensive ballot-fraud the republicans consultant was arrested back in february and has been charged with multiple felonies. The republican candidate from last time or kerris decided not to run in the redo. So this time you have the same democrat marine veteran named dan mccready running against a republican state senator named dan bishop so it's the same democrat who barely lost last time almost flipped a congressional seat in a district trump won by double digits. Naturally a lot of democrats crats are hoping that this time hopefully without significant ballot-fraud working against him. Dan mccreevy just might win but democrats are not the only ones who think that might happen republicans right up and into right up and into including donald trump or worried enough about this seat that a ton of them are swooping in to campaign for dan bishop the sweepers include house minority leader kevin mccarthy vice president mike pence donald trump junior and the president himself who set to appear at at a campaign rally the night before the election the latest polling in the race just out today from inside elections shows that the democrat dan mccreevy's actually ahead by four points that election is happening happening on september tenth mark your calendars and that does the press tonight rachel we back next week and you can catch me tomorrow at ten a._m.

"According to MBC news. This is the first time in US history that anew election has been called for a federal office because of election fraud that with Jimmy Williams and joining us Judd leg author and founder of popular dot info. And judd. This is pretty extraordinary because Mark Harris was defending himself all the way to the end. Their point appointed, which it wasn't clear even knew McRae. Dallas the person who perpetrated these frauds, and then his son got up on the stand. It all change. What happens now is he likely to run what happens, and is there going to be any remedy against him for this frog? I think he's very unlikely to run. And here's why there were his sons testimony you played a clip. It was extremely compelling and dramatic, and essentially he breaks down the idea that Harris had been talking about since the election that he didn't know anything about Dallas. Or the fact that Dallas was involved in legal activities because I was warning him not just for weeks. But for years that Dallas was trouble. But the real problem, and the reason why I think he may not run again is that he was also exposed the fact that he did not turn over to the investigators the emails that establish these conversations with his sons, and then was lying on the state under cross examination from the lawyer representing the democratic candidate, Dan McCreevy that he had told his younger son that he didn't expect those emails to come up, so sort of know ille- withholding information from the investigators. So I think the combination. Of all that it just looks too bad for him. I don't think Harris will run, although he hasn't indicated definitively their way.

The big question in the district case right now is whether a judge will certify the race the hearing for that is set for Tuesday in a just decision could be the clincher. That's for went that decision will come local experts say it will be later rather than sooner the case comes down to a petition Republican Marquez filed earlier this month in rawley for certification. He has more than one argument for why he wants and he believes he wanted district nine race back in November. And he says the congressional district needs representation. The state board of elections, though, says their investigation end to election fraud in that race needs to run. Its course something that Harrison's rival democrat, Dan McCreevy agrees with I think it's gonna be a hard legal hill to climb stunt. You J Michael Bedser is a political science professor at catava college. And he says this is Mark your case to prove Harrison has provided over six hundred pages of documents to support his case. But then there's the state board of elections Spitzer says they don't have to make a big case. But they do have to explain why it's taken so long. I think certainly the investigation that songs in some people's minds to be taking longer which certainly raise questions, but I would point to any type of other criminal activity or investigation being done by law enforcement, should a judge decide the district night race appeals can come from either the Harris or McCreevy campaign US house of representatives does have an ultimate authority on seating.

So Republican Mark Harris officially now the winner. But there was a feisty press conference at the White House today. President Trump issued a blunt warning to Democrats who will now going to control the house of representatives. He said if the damn start a lot of investigations against him, then fine. He'll use the Senate to go after Democrats. They can play that game. But we can play it better. Because we have a thing called the United States Senate a lot of very questionable things were done. Between leaks of classified information and many other elements that should not have taken place and. All you gotta do is end up in back and forth and back and forth. And two years is going to go up. Can we won't have done a thing? The president basically telling the Democrats he'll fight fire with fire when it comes to investigations and at the same news conference while taking questions the president mixed it up with CNN reporter Jim Acosta Kosta asked about the Mexican caravan. That's headed to the US. But then a Koster refused to give up the microphone insisting on a second question. Here's what that sounded. Like, they're hundreds of miles away though there hundreds and hundreds of miles away. That's not an invasion. Honestly, I think you should let me run the country you run CNN.

"Trump's popularity among many in the Republican party has not faded one bit in the last two years at the ones I talked to today who were willing to stand in the rain as one woman said, I'm a Trump Trump Trumpster, and they are, and I think probably the level of his support may still be underestimated by pollsters. So I guess I'm starting to think now, you know, maybe Republicans will hang onto the house. If this many people who are this stirred up do indeed get out to vote. And what does it mean for Mark Harris and Ted, bud? We will see the interesting thing about this is I think when they looked at this on paper, maybe a month ago, they said now we didn't know this was going to happen yet. But I'm sure that Republican operatives were plotting out where they might go. And I think they probably said at that point in time that Mark Harris need some help down there in North Carolina. I think Mark Harris got a bump from the cavenaugh hearings. I think Mark. Has has gotten a bump from some of the other headlines lately, and this this may end up being icing on the cake now that could change it we as we just pointed out at our pre game show so to speak. Two days ago. We're talking about the caravan. And then now in the last forty eight hours, we talking about this brand new story at least as far as this week is concerned about the suspicious packages. So you never know what the new cycle is going to be an, Robin. Hayes said that to us a little bit earlier on the broadcast. You don't know what's going to happen in the next two weeks. But I think if you're Mark Harris, you gotta like where you're standing right now comparatively to a month ago. Well, and Trump tried to turn the news cycle back to the caravans. He as you said he mentioned, this is about cavenaugh and caravans and tax cuts. So he tried to turn it back to those issues that got to be elected in two thousand sixteen and I think the other thing that is so interesting here is just in terms of Mark Harris another poll came out today. I believe from the New York Times still has him five points up. I think forty seven percent to forty percent that bodes very well for what's interesting, Mark is I thought it was interesting. Neither of the candidates bud or Harris mentioned there. Their opponents. They said they they referred to them as their opponents and Trump Trump and mentioned manning, and Dan McCreevy's that was interesting. So I, and I that that's what you call television soundbites, I faked that was specifically we will probably see a campaign ad against Dan McCreevy with with Trump saying, he's he's a liberal, and what was the other phrase that he used here. I can't remember what he said, Dan mccready is is a liberal. And I think that was probably done just for television ads that you'll see in the next week. And so ends final thoughts for. And our coverage today. Ten WBZ. Mark garrison. Always a pleasure to be on the air with you, read Janssen, happy to have you in the fold now as well. Thanks to Ron Tillerson who's been running things. He absolutely, of course, Jon more back at the station, the legendary John Moore and before him this afternoon, we had TJ bogs running the board and Pat MacQuarie, of course, was back. Paddock Corey was there for us in the in the early part of the show before he had to go find his seats and Jesse Nixon back in the studio as well. We could not do it with everybody behind the scenes making a sound good and helping the the great colossus do what we do which is bring you events. Like this the station of record here in Charlotte, North Carolina. So gosh, any final final plots started meteorologist said this is my very first ever political rally of Republican democrat, independent, whatever. And it was it was I think the woman that you interviewed earlier from Augusta hit the nail on the head of what it was like she called it a pep rally for America. And that's exactly what it felt like it felt like a pep rally. And everyone walking around with their American flag garb it just felt like a pep rally for America. And that's exactly what I feel like like a high school pep rally. Sure. Did. All right. Well, I just again, I was amazed at the size of the crowd. A given the weather, and I think that shows that the intensity of support for Donald Trump has not faded while. I remember that guy who has said when they were setting out to kind of stood out in the middle before the crowd kind of gathered, and he kind of looked at the podium me looked around.

And I think that that continues to be the the fact of the matter that folks have got to understand foot. This election is really about. And I think it's interesting you point out that the whole solar energy aspect of it and the tax credits that my opponent has really built his business that has really dependent on those tax credits to be able to be successful and those tax credits not only have caused the people of North Carolina.

"We're told the men inside did not have life threatening injuries right now. Low Politiken did you watch the debate last night between democrat, Dan McCreevy and Republican Mark Harris two men who've never held office running for congress in the ninth district. I've covered politics for a long time around here. It's fascinating to me. The Dan McCreevy is trying to distance himself from being a democrat. I don't think that anybody should go to Washington as a democrat I or Republican I should go as Americans. I I think that's what we're missing McCreevy who has never been in politics says the most important thing in the campaign to him is protecting social security and Medicaid, and he accused Republican Mark Harris of wanting to make big changes in social security. This is an area where Marquez said that he would cut. So scary Medicare? I am highly offended by the fact that it would be said that I would cut social security and Medicare. I never said that that is a lie is being perpetrated throughout this campaign. Calling McCreevy Aligarh probably the strongest language of the debate much of the hour was spent with McCreevy sounding very Republican. He did not utter one word of criticism of Donald Trump even praised Trump's fair trade efforts McCreadie said more than ten times during the debate. He's a marine as a marine who carried an M16. kept bringing up his military service, a Marine Corps veteran, and he insisted he would not support unpopular democratic leader Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the house if Democrats win control in November. I will not support Nancy Pelosi. That's nothing personal renew. People up there, we need some new blood. But Mark Harris said McCreevy is tied to Pelosi because she spent about three hundred thousand dollars on television ads attacking Harris. But I think that there is a certain naievety if you will to think that you will go to Washington as a democrat and not support Nancy Pelosi who frankly is spending that three hundred fifty thousand dollars that you're referencing to run negative ads against me. In fact, I think I heard that ranked third in the country and the amount of negative ads. The Nancy Pelosi's pack is spit, even though McCreevy would not criticize Donald Trump. He refused to say if he would consider impeachment. If Democrats do win the house he dodged the question. These kinds of decisions are very serious decisions decisions that need to be handled based on the facts in evidence as a small business owner. I don't deal in hypotheticals ideal on the facts, and that is a decision or any decision related to our constitution that I would treat very seriously based on the facts at the time in his television ads. Dan, McCreevy talks about becoming a Christian while on combat duty in Iraq in Iraq. He found another calling and was baptized in the waters of the Euphrates river. But former pastor Mark.

"Of leaders in washington congratulating us and really mmediately letting us know that they wanted to be there for us they wanted us to get washington as quickly as we could and meet with them so we've been doing that over the last few weeks we had opportunity to go up and meet with the national republican campaign committee and they've been extremely helpful and have committed their full support to helping us win this district so it's been it's been really good a lot of support for the north carolina delegation as well well and whoever wins this is gonna be a newcomer because the incumbent is out of the mix now and so a lot of national attention on this race and i was talking to you off the air i said the most attention that's been on the ninth district know probably since the days of digi martin versus alec mcmellon because a lot of people think this is going to be really highly contested election are you seeing are you feeling that national attention already the interest that people are talking about this race oh i think you know when we consider where we are as a country right now and i think there's no question there seemed to feel like this polarization that's taken place and i think people are certainly have strong thoughts and strong opinions and i think as we get ready to go into the fall there's only going to ramp up even more but there's a lot at stake i think that's one reason this is so important is because what's at stake you've got president trump you have his agenda that is obviously working in many ways we see with the tax cuts we see the economy moving at an incredible pace right now and just a lot of support for the president and the night district of north carolina without question and so i think when you stop and consider the agenda that he has put forward and that nancy pelosi and the democrats and of course dan mccreevy being a democrat our bottom line going to be part of that that they're trying to stop the agenda that president trump's put forward and so that's gonna cause a lot.

"And our food critic will be here right now little politicking getting ready for the fall campaign in the ninth district congressional seat it was a big week charlotte congressman robert pittenger dumped by republicans in the primary on tuesday so mark harris will take on democrat dan mccreevy both album newcomers to politics really mccreadie told me yesterday here on the show he's not going to run a bash trump campaign even though he's a democrat and says he will not support democratic leader nancy pelosi if he is elected americans are are really angry frustrated and they should be i am to what's going on in washington both sides that's why from day one of this campaign i said i will not vote for nancy pelosi or paul ryan hey let's check in with abc's top political guy reclines on the line with us rick mccreadie heard they're sort of running in a way as a democrat who's a non democrat it's a connor lamb playbook happened in pittsburgh a couple of a couple of months ago it a lot of people are talking about too you know it's the kind of district they hope to be successful on it's really really interesting but you know if the democrats are going to try to regain a seat here that's been republican since nineteen sixty three it seems like their strategy would be to bash trump yeah but here's the thing is you know if if democrats going be successful this year they're going to have to convince a lot of trump voters to vote for them and especially in in trump backing states and trump packing district so you can energize the anti trump forces but you you don't wanna make voters feel dumb for their mistakes or or perceived mistakes and a lot of trump voters most trump voters don't think they made a mistake so it's a really tough thing if you're a democrat running these districts that to try to throw that needle plus in this district a third of the voters are independents and that's going to be an interesting factor appealing to those too.

"The last week in in really burst into the spotlight as freshman year congresswoman kathleen rice i mean people know that she has been a a reformer and a critic of of nancy pelosi but she came out with possibly in to correct me if i'm wrong but i think the strongest anti pelosi statement she is the one primmer of that caucus the called her out directly yesterday saying that pelosi's appearance set women back and quite frankly our party back for decades by failing to more forcefully confront the allegations of harassment against connors q majan for somebody for a freshman member of congress to take on the minority leader that the uh the former speaker that way i mean it goes to show you the kind of anger but also the kind of opportunity that presents itself in a situation like this and what's interesting is not only people remember that next session particularly if democrats are in the majority but there will be if democrats do win the majority or too close to it it will b on a wave of democratic women elected from across the country women many of whom were almost radicalize or or pushed into running by anger over donald trump and they are simply not going to tolerate the practices now the congressional practices of recent decades yet we saw that even with the virginia governor's race i mean you know that really was one and lost on northern virginia suburban women and i feel like if i were a republican or democrat looking at 2018 or 2020 i would be thinking how can i court that group of suburban women there's no question it's becoming a galvanizing age as you point out nancy barbara comstock is in one of the most interesting congressional race in america it's a a doubledigit clinton district held by republican and there's been a lot of questions belly how is she going to kind of separate herself from this in order to try and win reelection again this issue screams out as one that could potentially galvanize a lot of a lot of voters seeing her take a leadership position on on the other side we saw there's a democrat named dan mccreevy whose.
