McCrory Whines about Trump endorsement of Ted Budd
Pat McCrory's campaign was in full cry-baby mode after President Trump endorsed the only genuine conservative running in the NC GOP Senate primary, Congressman Ted Budd.  The failed former governor put out social media posts calling Budd a "Washington insider" despite the fact that Budd is a member of the Freedom Caucus, which has fought tooth and nail against the Washington swamp.    The RINO ex-governor claimed that Budd was weak on immigration issues, despite the fact that key anti-immigration organization NumbersUSA gives Budd an A+ / 100% rating on his voting record in opposing illegal immigration.  As governor, on the other hand, McCrory gave NC drivers licenses to DACA illegal aliens in spite of state laws prohibiting that and federal court rulings that states were not required to give licenses to DACA illegal aliens.
McCrory also made an unfounded accusation that Budd had not supported Obamacare repeal.  The reality is that McCrory as governor left the door open for North Carolina to adopt the Obamacare state marketplace and the Obamacare Medicaid expansion.  That door had to be closed by Senator Phil Berger pushing a bill through the legislature to tie McCrory's hands so he could not do either one as governor.
One wonders how McCrory could have ever expected Trump to support him.  In the 2016 campaign, McCrory made some really off the wall excuses to not appear for Trump campaign events in the state, and after the 2020 election, McCrory used his talk radio program to blast Trump for challenging the election fraud in the election.  Ted Budd supported investigation of election fraud last year and has always appeared at Trump campaign events in his part of the state.

McCrory is way off base on his electability comments. It is McCrory himself who is the problem in that regard. McCrory has run statewide three times. All were races where he was either favored to win or it was a dead heat, yet he only managed to bring one of those three home to victory. It was McCrory's bungling that cost the GOP two out of those three races. He has a poor track record on electability. Ted Budd, on the other hand, has never lost an election. In his first primary, he was a real underdog, a political newcomer who had never run for office, yet he defeated multiple seasoned and well known officeholders to win his primary and the general election.
