Statement on the North Carolina 9th District Special Election

Last night’s special election in the historically Republican 9th district of North Carolina is a sign of rapidly shifting political winds. More and more, voters are putting their partisan interests aside and voting their values first. Bishop’s narrow win in a district the president won by 12 points proves that Republicans, Independents, and Democrats are coming together in a cross-partisan coalition to stand up for unifying and accountable leadership.

Across the country, people of all backgrounds and beliefs are standing up for their freedom, changing the political landscape by putting country over party and rejecting the politics of partisanship first. Dan Bishop may have won last night’s election, but the narrow margin should put every politician on notice: Americans will not accept fraud, divisiveness, and manipulation. People are looking for leaders who will represent them, not put partisan political interests first. In the coming elections, Stand Up Republic will continue build this cross-partisan bloc of voters to demand a healthier, more accountable politics in America.
