Harris Owes $34,000 To Consultant In 'Reimbursement Payment for Bladen Absentee'

A new filing shows the Republican candidate in North Carolina's unresolved congressional race owes $34,000 to a consultant that's been subpoenaed in a ballot fraud probe. 

The Mark Harris campaign listed a debt of $34,310 owed to the Red Dome Group in a filing with the Federal Election Commission submitted late Thursday.

The form says the nature of the debt included "Reimbursement Payment for Bladen Absentee." 

The filing lists two other debts totaling nearly $20,000 to Red Dome for digital advertising, robocalls and mailings for Harris, whose slim lead over Democrat Dan McCready is now in question.

Red Dome hired a Bladen County contractor being scrutinized by the North Carolina Elections Board. The state has refused to certify the results while it investigates allegations the contractor fraudulently delivered absentee votes for Harris.
