In a major victory for both President Trump and national Republicans, North Carolina GOP state Sen. Dan Bishop was projected to win a fiercely contested special U.S. House election for the 9th District that was widely seen as a bellwether for the president's chances in the 2020 election.

And another Republican House candidate, Greg Murphy, decisively won a separate special election in North Carolina's more solidly GOP-leaning 3rd District earlier Tuesday evening -- frustrating Democrats who spent millions trying to make a splash in the state.

Did Trump’s rally help Republicans win the seat since 1963?

No it’s not unless the point went right over your head. The Democratic candidate performed better than he did last fall so just how much did Trump help?  :shrug:  Trump May have hurt as much as he helped, it’s too hard to quantify. The bottom line is that a Republican candidate in a Republican district barely won in a race that the “president” and “Vice president” campaigned in and won by 12 points during said “president’s” election.

Wrong again. As usual.  No Republican in North Carolina was a member of the House of Representatives in 1963. The democrats spent millions in a district that had no chance of winning in 2019. They spent millions in Cumberland County.  That county was going to vote democrat anyway.

Sen. James Broyhill

And, since y04 pretended NOT to know about it,...

In the 2018 mid-terms, Harris hired a guy (who his son warned him about due to past cheating) who tampered with absentee ballots in order to help Harris.  That was the primary reason, the Repubs did not run Harris again in the special election.

y04 would respond, if he had the guts, "Voter ID!!"
