Mark Har­ris (R), a 2016 chal­lenger, is con­sid­er­ing an­oth­er primary bid against Rep. Robert Pit­tenger (R), the three-term con­gress­man he lost to by 135 votes in a low-turnout elec­tion delayed by court-ordered re­dis­trict­ing. Har­ris “in­formed his con­greg­a­tion Sunday morn­ing of his de­cision to step aside as seni­or pas­tor in the fu­ture. The church lead­er­ship will an­nounce a trans­ition plan Ju­ly 2. Pit­tenger … sent an email to his sup­port­ers ac­know­ledging Har­ris’ po­ten­tial run for the seat.” (WSOC-TV)

ON BOARD. New Polit­ics, “a na­tion­al or­gan­iz­a­tion that re­cruits and sup­ports mil­it­ary vet­er­ans and na­tion­al ser­vice alumni to run for pub­lic of­fice,” backed Mar­ine vet­er­an Dan Mc­Cready (D) in his bid to un­seat Pit­tenger. (re­lease)

The dis­trict leans heav­ily Re­pub­lic­an and backed Don­ald Trump by 12 points.
