(Gateway Pundit) – Republican Dan Bishop defeated Democrat challenger Dan McCready Tuesday in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District special election.

Dan Bishop was down 17 points 3 weeks ago. He then asked me for help, we changed his strategy together, and he ran a great race. Big Rally last night. Now it looks like he is going to win. @CNN & @MSNBC are moving their big studio equipment and talent out. Stay tuned!
