NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer Statement on NC-09

February 21, 2019

WASHINGTON – National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Emmer released the following statement regarding the North Carolina State Board of Elections’ decision to call for a new election in the 9th Congressional District:

“Voter fraud is never acceptable and neither is ballot harvesting. We call on Democrats to join Republicans in rejecting the practice of ballot harvesting in every congressional district in the country. States that do not have laws against ballot harvesting are more susceptible to voter fraud and as Washington Democrats have said, ‘No American should have to wonder whether the vote they cast is counted and counted fairly.'”
