Sounds like Harris decided he was in too much of a hole and had better stop digging.

Wonder if he'll try running again in the new election?

I'd be very surprised if he didn't run again. someone has to go up there to Washington to help protect the country from all those illegals voting.

This is all very interesting, because until the courts struck down some of it, North Carolina had some of the most stringent voting laws around, much of which went out of its way to disenfranchise Black voters in droves, for what Iím assuming are totally not racist reasons. Before drafting said laws, the legislators actually pulled up several years worth of voting records, figured out whic forms of voting or voting IDs were the most used by Black voters, and those laws pretty much did everything they could to take these forms of voting or voting IDs off the table. But Iím sure all this carefully researched and well-crafted targeted racism really had nothing to do with racism.

Turns out itís White people who have a tendency to commit voting fraud, not those scary Brown people. Who would have guessed?

Harris is not running again. He has said that he needs to focus on recovering from recent health problems. So instead, he is endorsing a Boss Hogg cosplayer for the seat.
