Republican Dan Bishop wins NC 9th US Congressional District race

RALEIGH — Republican incumbent Rep. Dan Bishop has beaten Democratic challenger Cynthia Wallace to retain N.C.’s 9th U.S. Congressional District seat.

Bishop is an attorney and former state legislator from southern Mecklenburg who was elected in a special election in 2019. Wallace is a financial services professional from Charlotte.

“Ready to keep fighting for the people #nc09,” tweeted Bishop on election night after his win was announced.

“Congratulations to Dan Bishop on his reelection,” said National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Emmer in a statement. “Once again, North Carolinians rejected the Democrats’ socialist agenda and chose Dan Bishop who will fight for and defend North Carolina values in Washington. Dan is a true conservative leader and I welcome him back to Congress.”

The N.C. State Board of Elections (NCSBE) will continue to accept absentee ballots through Nov. 12. Due to the extended deadline for those ballots, results reported on election night may change.
