Trump Takes Credit For GOP Victory In North Carolina House Race That Was Forced By GOP Election Fraud

The Associated Press reports:

President Donald Trump is taking credit for turning around a faltering Republican congressional candidate and hoisting him to victory in a North Carolina special election.

Trump wrote on Twitter late Tuesday that Dan Bishop was down by 17 points three weeks ago, but after the 9th Congressional District candidate asked Trump for help, “we changed his strategy together.”

There’s no evidence from public polling that Bishop ever trailed Democrat Dan McCready by such a large margin. Private polls and campaign consultants had described the race as very close. Bishop’s victory margin was about 2% with nearly all precincts reporting.
