A shooting at the North Carolina residence of a Republican congressional candidate has forced the politician to evacuate his family in the waning weeks of his campaign – all after receiving a slew of death threats that have spurred the ex-soldier to attend events in a bulletproof vest.

The shooting transpired on October 18 and saw a single shot fired into a home belonging to the parents of Republican Pat Harrigan, a former Green Beret running for an open seat in the state’s left-leaning 14th Congressional District.

Despite occurring almost a month ago, the incident had not been reported on until Thursday – after it was revealed the FBI had launched an investigation into the shooting after the bullet was found just feet away from where the candidate’s daughters, aged 3 and 5, had been sleeping.

As the incident was made public, the family would reveal that the two girls had been living with their grandparents for much of the campaign cycle due to the slew of death threats – which they said put ‘tremendous stress’ on Harrigan, 35, and his loved ones.

The kids have since been relocated out of state, according to their grandmother – while Harrigan, who was not at the residence at the time of the shooting, has since come forward to confirm that he owns a lakeside property near the residence, in the town of Hickory.

Shockingly, that same property was featured in a campaign ad recently aired by Harrigan’s primary opponent, Democrat Jeff Jackson – a scathing spot that showed the house and all of its surroundings. The commercial first aired on October 18, the day of the shooting, and has since been pulled from syndication.

An investigation has been underway since, but cops and federal agents have yet to to make an arrest. The shooting comes amid heightened concerns for the security of politicians ahead of next week’s Midterms, following Friday’s attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s 82-year-old husband at their San Francisco home.
