Ted Budd Leads Senate Field With More Than $1.7m Cash-on-Hand | Beaufort County Now | Momentum grows as Ted Budd eliminates fundraising disadvantage six months ahead of schedule

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Press Release:

    Advance, NC     Ted Budd for US Senate filed their FEC report today. The campaign brought in more than $950K for the quarter and now leads the candidate field with over $1.7M cash-on-hand, eliminating any fundraising disadvantage six months ahead of schedule and leaving Budd with almost $800K more cash-on-hand than his closest Republican primary opponent.

    "Amy Kate and I are very grateful to everyone who has invested in our campaign," said Budd. "Under President Donald Trump, the US economy grew at a record setting pace. Under President Job Biden, the US inflation rate is the only thing likely to be growing at a record setting pace! The Biden agenda is hurting our working families across North Carolina. I appreciate that, even when facing these uncertain economic times, folks are still willing to invest their hard-earned dollars to support our shared vision of America First policies that protect and promote American jobs as priority number 1."

    "No matter how folks feel about career politicians, they start their campaigns with significant name ID and fundraising advantages," said Jonathan Felts, Senior Advisor to the Budd campaign. "Pat McCrory has the deft touch of a tier-one professional politician when it comes to working over fat cats and raising big dollars at some of the most exclusive venues across North Carolina."

    "We fully anticipated, and planned, that it would take us all of 2021 to close the finance gap with the McCrory campaign," Felts continued. "But we've eliminated the McCrory money advantage six months ahead of schedule and that's going to allow us to accelerate our campaign buildout. Momentum matters in politics. Ted Budd has the big-mo, and it's looking like Pat McCrory has no-mo."

    Ted Budd is a small businessman raised in Davie County where he and his wife, Amy Kate, live today with their three children and Boone, their dog. Ted was elected to Congress along with President Donald Trump in 2016 and has established a strong, conservative record supporting efforts to secure our borders and stand up for America-First policies that protect American jobs and increase opportunities for working men and women across North Carolina. Ted has spent his career as a small businessman and presently owns and operates a gun store and training center.
