Democrat Dan McCready said he has raised $1.6 million in the first quarter for his campaign to represent the 9th Congressional District in North Carolina, The Hill is reporting.
McCready had run for the seat last year against Republican Mark Harris. However, allegations of election fraud prompted officials to schedule a new election. Harris had announced he would not run again. McCready is the only Democrat in the race, while 10 Republicans will battle in a May 14 primary.
“This is just one more sign of the incredible energy and momentum we’re seeing on the ground as we head into the special election,” McCready said regarding his fundraising haul.
“Let this be a warning to every politician who turned a blind eye to election fraud and corruption. We aren’t just talking about taking our state back. We’re doing it. This is just the beginning.”
