Conservative Dan Bishop (R-Mecklenburg) filed Thursday to run in the 9thCongressional District special election.

“I’m running because the people of the 9th District deserve a Congressman who will defend our Constitution and tell them where he stands on the issues. That’s not Dan McCready. He’s the wrong Dan in this race.  I support President Trump’s Wall, the Second Amendment, protecting the unborn, low taxes, sustainable government spending and the freedoms granted to every American by our Constitution’s First Amendment.  Dan McCready’s Democratic Party has gone just plain crazy – they’re doing all they can to undermine the values and freedoms that made America great.”

Bishop was elected to the state legislature in 2014. In just his third term he’s become one of the most effective and conservative lawmakers in North Carolina. Dan led the fight to put the Voter ID Constitutional Amendment on the ballot last November and has been A rated by the NRA for protecting our second amendment rights. NC Right to Life and the North Carolina Values Coalition have supported Dan for protecting the unborn and defending conservative Christian values. Dan cut or eliminated state income taxes on 99% of North Carolina families, and he voted to punish sanctuary cities that harbor illegal aliens.
