A longtime friend and fellow pastor, Mike Whitson, assured Mr. Harris, the Republican congressional candidate for North Carolina’s Ninth District, that “it was God who sets up kings” and that “God could be trusted with the outcome” of this race. Mr. Harris won by just 905 votes, and jubilation set in. But now, a month later, the story of Mr. Harris’s path to victory appears far from a divine anointing. In one of the … [Read more...] about Republican in Disputed North Carolina Race Is Favorite of Christian Right

McCrae Dowless Jr. was a peculiar politician when he stood before the North Carolina State Board of Elections: a runaway winner who had come to the capital to fan fears of fraud and to protest the outcome of a race in which he had been victorious. “I’m not saying there’s any wrongdoing here,” Mr. Dowless, who had been elected a soil and water conservation district supervisor, told the Raleigh-based board in December 2016. “I just want it investigated because it was a high volume of write-ins.” Just two years later, Mr. Dowless, a bit player in North Carolina’s incessant battles over voting rules and alleged fraud, is at the center of … [Read more...] about Disputed North Carolina Race May Hinge on a Shadowy Operative
Isaac Stanley-Becker, The Washington Post Published 2:47 am PST, Monday, November 19, 2018 Chickenpox has taken hold of a school in North Carolina where many families claim religious exemption from vaccines. Cases of chickenpox have been multiplying at the Asheville Waldorf School, which serves children from nursery school to sixth grade in Asheville, North Carolina. About a dozen infections grew to 28 at the beginning of the month. By Friday, there were 36, the Asheville Citizen-Times reported. The outbreak ranks as the state's worst since the chickenpox vaccine became available more than 20 years ago. Since then, the two-dose course has succeeded in limiting the highly contagious disease that once affected 90 percent of Americans.

The percentage of children under 2 years old … [Read more...] about Anti-vaccination stronghold in North Carolina hit with state’s worst chickenpox outbreak in 2 decades
