Concord, NC— Saturday, Mark Harris finished first place in a straw poll conducted of all declared Republican candidates for United States Senate at the North Carolina Republican Party’s 8th Congressional district committee’s annual Christmas Gala.  The meeting was attended by a variety of North Carolina Legislators, District Executive Committee members, County Chairmen and grassroots leadership.  The 8th district includes all of Anson, Montgomery, Richmond, Scotland, and Stanly counties, as well as portions of Cabarrus, Davidson, Mecklenburg, Randolph, Robeson, Rowan, and Union counties. 

“I am honored to receive this support from the Republicans of the 8th District and look forward to expanding our grassroots army and support base throughout these counties and the rest of the state,” said Mark Harris.  “It’s humbling to have received 54% of the vote from these fired up Republicans who recognize the importance of taking over a majority in the US Senate.”
