The initial Primary Election for U.S. House District 9 took place on May 15. Because the Republican Party was the only party with more than one candidate filed to run, the Republican Primary was the only primary held that day. Dan Bishop won the Republican Primary with 47.67% of the vote. The General Election between Dan Bishop, Dan McCready, Allen Smith, and Jeff Scott will take place on September 10.
As a service to North Carolina voters, the NC Family Policy Council has surveyed all candidates running in the Special Election for U.S. House District 9. The candidates’ responses to our 2019 Candidate Questionnaire are included below. We invited candidates to provide additional comments or explanations for their responses, if the “Yes,” “No,” or “Undecided” response options did not allow them to fully express their positions on the issues. You may click on the candidates’ names to view a scanned copy of their questionnaire and additional comments. NC Family made multiple attempts to contact all candidates by mail, phone, and email (when available) to encourage their participation in NC Family’s non-partisan 2019 Voter Guide. You may download a copy of this voter guide here.
