Dan McCready (D., N.C.), the sole remaining Democratic candidate from the 2018 midterm cycle, has returned a $2,000 campaign donation from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), the controversial congresswoman whose anti-Semitic remarks have elicited condemnation from both sides of the aisle.
McCready is running in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, where state officials ordered a new election in February after the initial results—a narrow loss for McCready—were tainted by credible allegations of fraud committed by operatives working on behalf of his Republican opponent, Mark Harris. Republican voters will choose a new candidate to challenge McCready in May; the general election is scheduled for Sept. 10.
The article goes on to state the following:
Democrats continue to view the 9th District, which Donald Trump won by 12 points in 2016, as a pickup opportunity, thanks in part to McCready’s strong support in the Charlotte suburbs, where roughly half of the district’s voters live. The party’s strong showing among these moderate suburban voters contributed significantly to its successful campaign to retake the House majority in November.
Not surprisingly, McCready has worked to distance himself from controversial Democrats who might alienate these voters. In addition to rejecting Omar’s financial support, McCready also pledged to vote against Nancy Pelosi for House Speaker.
I condemn in the strongest terms the hateful rhetoric against her, the Muslim community and people of color. Too many have been hurt by our broken politics. We must end hate speech against all people and groups.

Here in NC, we’ve seen politicians steal people’s votes and silence their voices for their own political gain. We’ve seen big-money bribery at the highest levels. Enough is enough.
