Robert Pittenger lost his primary by a narrow margin in May, he suspected something was amiss.
The nation's last unresolved fall congressional race with Republican Mark Harris against Democrat Dan McCready. In other words, McCrory attributed fraud to the Democratic Party.
Some voters said they handed their unsealed ballots over to one of these operatives.
A spokesman for the NRCC denied that Pittenger's campaign raised the possibility of fraud in the primary. The state elections board refused to certify the results, citing "claims of numerous irregularities and concerted fraudulent activities related to absentee mail ballots", according to Joshua Malcolm, who was bumped from the board's vice chair to its chairman by Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, on Monday.
But in recent days, with more evidence surfacing of absentee ballot fraud, including the possible destruction of ballots from Democrats, McCready withdrew his concession on Thursday, accusing Harris of knowingly supporting 'criminal activity'. Absentee ballots in North Carolina require two witnesses' signatures.

They repeatedly cast the situation in political terms, asserting that any voting irregularities were not widespread enough to change the outcome of the election.

Harris, the Republican candidate, won 61 percent of the mail-in ballots that were turned in.

"Join me in this fight for the people whose voices were taken from them", he said. "It's unfortunate that there's a revisionist history going on". He has been named Harris' incoming chief of staff, although whether Harris will be seated in Congress in January remains uncertain.
The state elections board has twice declined to certify Harris' victory and plans to hold an evidentiary hearing in the case this month.
But he said there was "a lot of angst" among his campaign aides, who "were all upset about what happened".
"I have been studying Southern politics for 30 years and North Carolina politics for 15, and I have never seen anything like that", Bitzer said. The state Board of Elections and the Wake County District Attorney have launched investigations.
Dowless earned more than $23,000 working on six campaigns dating back to 2010, and in most of those races, Dowless' candidates received a disproportionately higher percentage of absentee votes in Bladen County. It is illegal to collect or tamper with someone else's ballot.
There are also claims that incomplete ballots were collected and then filled out later, Cohen said. Sources told the Post that the state GOP "did little to scrutinize the results", and focused instead on the general election.
"We are not ready to call for a new election yet", Woodhouse added.
There is little chance as many voters who cast ballots on November 6 would vote if new elections are held, Stone said.
