President Donald Trump celebrated Dan Bishop’s apparent victory Tuesday in the special election in the Ninth Congressional district of North Carolina.
Now it looks like he is going to win,” Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to Monday night’s rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina with Bishop.
Bishop was declared the winner of the race with 50.8 percent of the vote to Democrat Dan McCready’s 48.6 percent, with 99 percent of the vote reporting.
It is unclear what poll the president was referring to, as most polls of the race showed either candidate with a single-digit percentage lead.
“We changed his strategy together, and he ran a great race,” Trump wrote.
