|Republicans tried to steal an election for Congress. They got caught. An historic do-over election will be held this fall, and now we finally know who the Republican is going to be: Dan Bishop. |
Republicans tried to steal this seat. Their pick for this year’s do-over election made national headlines in 2016 for writing one of the most hateful pieces of bigoted legislation: North Carolina’s notorious “bathroom bill.” Congress has enough hateful, anti-LGBTQ Republicans already. Please give $5 to help Democrat Dan McCready win in September.
Dan Bishop’s name may not sound familiar, but you know of his work. Bishop is the author of North Carolina’s notorious anti-LGBTQ “bathroom bill” that required anyone using bathrooms at schools or public facilities to use the restroom associated with the gender on their birth certificate, not the gender they identify with.
The backlash to Bishop’s bill was intense. It sparked national boycotts, and some North Carolina politicians paid the price at the polls, like former GOP Gov. Pat McCrory, who signed the bill into law. (Thankfully, the Democrat who beat him, Roy Cooper, rolled back the measure).
Bishop, though, hasn’t paid any price—yet—but we can make him. This is a conservative district, but Democrat Dan McCready has proven that he has a good shot at winning here: The tainted results of last year’s invalidated election showed him trailing by just 905 votes, and thanks to Republican election fraud, we know that margin was bogus.
A lot is at stake in any congressional election, but the stakes are much higher with someone like Dan Bishop in the race. We cannot allow a man that pushes such bigoted policies to reach the U.S. Capitol. That is why I am asking you to support Democrat Dan McCready by giving $5 today.
