GOP Candidate’s Kids Almost KILLED After Gunman Opens Fire At His Families North Carolina Home


Tensions are high across the country with less than a week until the midterm election day, Tuesday, November 8th.

The political rhetoric from both sides of the aisle has unfortunately led to a handful of unstable citizens, in various communities across the nation, to act out violently against those from the opposing political party.

There have been attacks on elected officials, candidates, and their families, notably the attack on U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi; a shooting at New York GOP gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin’s home; and a reported assault of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Don Bolduc of New Hampshire at a campaign event Nov. 2.

The FBI has now launched an investigation after a gunman shot into the North Carolina family home of a Republican congressional candidate in October, according to reports.

A bullet landed just a few feet from where Pat Harrigan’s children were sleeping during the shooting on October 18 in Hickory, the Carolina Journal reported.

The shooting took place at the residence of the former Green Beret’s parents of GOP congressional candidate Pat Harrigan, who is running against Democrat state Sen. Jeff Jackson in NC’s 14th congressional district.

CJ spoke with Harrigan campaign manager Brandon Craft, who said that someone shot into the Hickory residence and that the investigation has been ongoing since that time.

Hickory Police Department (HPD) responded to the incident and noted the crime was perpetrated with a firearm.

Kristen Hart, a spokeswoman for HPD, told reporters that the department has not made any arrests in the case as of Thursday.

“No one was injured, but the officers investigating did find evidence of a bullet casing which is being looked into,” Hart said.

The investigation is now being handled in a coordinated effort between local, state, and federal officials.

The event comes in the midst of a fairly negative campaign between the two candidates, with Harrigan recently challenging Jackson to a debate in an open letter and Jackson questioning Harrigan’s residency in NC-14.

While residency in the district is not required for congressional races, some voters consider it a negative if a candidate resides outside.
