Senator Ralph Hise (R-Mitchell), Chairman of the Joint Legislative Elections Oversight Committee, today issued the following statement in response to opposition from Congressional Democrats for a new primary if the North Carolina State Board of Elections orders a new election in the 9th Congressional District: 
"The hypocrisy from Democrats demanding the NC-9 primary results stand if fraud allegations are proved true is breathtaking and deeply depressing. News outlets, including the New York Times, have reported that the same alleged shenanigans took place in both the primary and the general election. Yet Democratic Members of Congress say the alleged fraud, if proven true, requires a new general election and, at the same time, the alleged fraud is no grounds for a new primary election. I’d like the number for their acting coach, because it’s remarkable they could say that with a straight face. If a new election is called, primary voters deserve the chance to choose their candidate based on new information they didn’t have earlier this year. A new election means a new election, fair and square."
