Republican Politician From North Carolina
Mark Harris (born April 24, 1966) is an American pastor and politician from North Carolina. He is a Republican candidate for the redrawn North Carolina's 8th congressional district 2024 election, Representative Dan Bishop is vacating his seat to run for attorney general.Harris previously ran to represent North Carolina's 9th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives in the 2016 and 2018 elections. In 2016, he was defeated in the Republican primary by incumbent Robert Pittenger. Harris ran for Congress again in 2018, defeating Pittenger in the Republican primary. In the general election against Democratic opponent Dan McCready, initial tallies appeared to show Harris winning the election but an election panel declined to certify these results after allegations of harvesting involving McCrae Dowless, a Republican political operative employed by the Harris campaign. Dowless was later criminally charged in connection with the alleged fraud, but Harris was not. In February 2019, the bipartisan North Carolina Board of Elections dismissed the results of the election and called for a new election to be held. Following more than a year of investigation by multiple North Carolina and Federal agencies, in 2020 Mark Harris was cleared in the probe related to the absentee ballot harvesting case that triggered a new special election. He was not a candidate in the new election, which was won by fellow Republican Dan Bishop.

Voterly uses special interest group ratings to determine a politician's stance on a political or social issue. Special interest groups release ratings of politicians to convey whether that politician is in favor of their cause. For example, a politician who actively supports gun rights will receive a high rating from a pro-gun interest group. That same politician would be rated low by a gun control interest group. This collection of ratings informs where we place a politician on the spectrum of the issue.
