Influential tribe set to play key role in NC election


September 11, 2019

PEMBROKE, N.C. — Republicans and Democrats are working in a last-ditch effort to turn out voters from North Carolina’s Lumbee Tribe ahead of the critical special election in the 9th District.

The tribe, the largest east of the Mississippi, could play a deciding factor in the race, which is among the first tests of the political landscape heading into the 2020 elections. Internal polls show Democrat Dan McCready and Republican state Sen. Dan Bishop in a dead heat ahead of Tuesday’s vote, and both sides concede that the race will likely be decided by a razor-thin margin.
