|U.S. House, North Carolina , District 11|
Harris ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing North Carolina's 6th District. Harris sought the nomination on the Republican ticket. The signature filing deadline for candidates wishing to run was February 29, 2012. Harris faced Ethan Wingfield, Jeff Hunt, Spence Campbell, Mark Meadows, Vance Patterson, Chris Petrella and Kenny West in the May 8, 2012 Republican primary.
Because no candidate received more than 40% of the vote in the Republican primary election on May 8, 2012, a runoff primary took place. Harris was eliminated in the May 8, 2012 primary.
The Washington Post listed the House of Representatives elections in North Carolina in 2012 as one of the states that could determine whether Democrats would retake the House or Republicans would hold their majority in 2013. North Carolina was rated 8th on the list.
The primary took place on May 8, 2012.
