    Raleigh, NC — Today, retired Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison announced his endorsement of E.C. Sykes for North Carolina Secretary of State.

    "The far-left's demands to defund North Carolina's police are growing more aggressive every day. Our first-responders deserve the highest level of appreciation and respect for providing an indispensable service to North Carolina-instead, they're facing an uprising of radicals who want to put our families and communities in danger," said Harrison. "North Carolinians deserve elected officials that will uphold their oath to keep our state safe by supporting police. E.C. has made it clear that he'll do exactly that, and I look forward to what an outsider like him can do as Secretary of State."

    "The members of our law enforcement community deserve to know whether they're elected officials have their backs. Families across North Carolina deserve to know whether the person they vote for intends to uphold the security and safety of our state," said Sykes. "While she has remained silent, Elaine Marshall's friends on the left are only getting louder-they want to undermine the rule of law and live in a society with no rules or consequences. We simply cannot let that happen. I appreciate the support of Sheriff Harrison and the many other members of the law enforcement community who realize what's at stake in this election."

    Donnie Harrison served as Sheriff of Wake County from 2002 to 2018. Prior to being elected as Sheriff, he served for 26 years as a law enforcement officer in the North Carolina Highway Patrol. From 1988 to 1992, he also served as Chief of Security for Lieutenant Governor James Gardner.

    Sheriff Harrison joins many other members of the law enforcement community who are supporting E.C. Sykes' campaign, all of which will be announced in the upcoming weeks. In addition to community of first-responders, the Sykes campaign has also been endorsed by leaders across North Carolina, such as Majority Leader John Bell, President Pro Tempore Phil Berger, NC House Agriculture Chairman Jimmy Dixon, former Lieutenant Governor and Congressman Jim Gardner, and civil rights leader Clarence Henderson.

    While Elaine Marshall remains silent and in hiding, E.C. Sykes continues to prove that North Carolinians want a business outsider as their next Secretary of State, not a 26-year career politician. The Sykes campaign will continue to push Marshall to go on the record about where she stands on the issue of defunding the police.
