N. Carolina to hold new election in disputed US House race

N. Carolina to hold new election in disputed US House raceNorth Carolina officials on Thursday ordered a new congressional election after the contest — the last undecided race in the US House of Representatives — was tainted by fraud accusations. The southeastern state’s board of elections voted to hold a new House race in the 9th District after Republican candidate Mark Harris, who is accused of hiring an operative involved in an absentee ballot tampering scheme, dramatically reversed course and called for a new vote. In earlier testimony, Harris had maintained he was unaware of any absentee ballot tampering, and had suggested there was a Democratic plot afoot to deny him a seat in Congress.
