9 North Carolina Sheriffs Endorses Ted Budd for US Senate


   
Conservative Law Enforcement Officers from Across the State Believe Ted Budd is the Best Choice for North Carolina and Law & Order


    (Advance, NC)     9 Sheriffs from across North Carolina today endorsed Ted Budd for US Senate. The group includes members who protect counties across North Carolina.

    "I've always been a big supporter of law enforcement," said Ted Budd. "It was a Winston-Salem police officer who encouraged me to buy the gun training facility I own because local police officers needed a place to train, and I was only too happy to help. While folks on the fringe Left want to defund the police, I want to protect and promote the police. Our communities are better for everyone when there is good, quality law enforcement. And that's why I am so honored that these Sheriffs are endorsing my campaign. These good people are on the front lines day in and day out and always answer the call to serve. I appreciate their service and Amy Kate and I are honored to have their support and look forward to being their partner at the federal level."

    "Sheriffs are where the rubber meets the road in counties," said Jonathan Felts, Senior Advisor to Ted Budd for US Senate. "They know what's working and what's not working. If you want to know what's going on in a county, you want to have the sheriff on speed dial. These folks have to run for office as well and definitely have their finger on the political pulse. Sheriffs understand the importance of grassroots coalitions better than a lot of career politicians do. We're very grateful to have them jumping onboard the Liberal Agenda Crusher to help Ted Budd defeat the defund-the-police crowd."

    Please see the list of endorsers (alphabetical order by county) and their quotes below.

    The Honorable J.D. Hartman, Sheriff, Davie County

    Congressman Budd has always been willing to listen to the needs and concerns I have with law enforcement and quality of life issues in our county and district. He works to protect citizens from criminals and to support those that protect our communities. I also know through personal experience that Congressman Ted Budd and his staff work with the citizens of our district to make sure that they have access to the services of the Federal Government. I am proud to endorse Ted Budd for the US Senate.

    The Honorable Wes Tripp, Sheriff, Halifax County

    Ted Budd is a strong supporter of law enforcement. But just as important for me, Ted Budd understands the challenges facing our small towns and rural communities and I know he will be a fighter for all North Carolinians, not just the folks in big cities. Just like President Donald Trump, I am proud to endorse Ted Budd for US Senate.

    The Honorable Lowell Griffin, Sheriff, Henderson County

    I'm endorsing Ted Budd for US Senate because I know he supports law enforcement and because I know he was raised with NC values. When I visit with Ted, I know he appreciates the big cities in NC but also the small towns and the sense of community that they share. I believe in NC and that's why I know Ted Budd is the right man to fight for our working families in the US Senate.

    The Honorable Darren Campbell, Sheriff, Iredell County

    I worked my career from the bottom up so that I was fully prepared to serve as Sheriff. When Ted Budd first ran for office, he started at the bottom as well and no one gave him a chance. But he worked hard and won a 17-way primary. I had a lot of friends in that race, but I was really impressed with Ted's work ethic on the campaign trail and even more impressed with how hard Ted Budd has worked representing Iredell County and the rest of his district. When Iredell County needs something, I know that Ted Budd is going to do everything he can to help us. Ted Budd will take this same commitment to public service to the US Senate and that's why I'm endorsing my Congressman, Ted Budd, for the US Senate.

    The Honorable Bill Beam, Sheriff, Lincoln County

    Ted is a good Christian working for we the people with proven leadership at the national level.

    The Honorable Ronnie Fields, Sheriff, Moore County

    I've been honored to spend almost all of my career in public service, working in law enforcement and serving in public office. I know what it takes to get things done and I also know local officials need a partner in our US Senators. I firmly believe Ted Budd will be a great advocate for North Carolinians and that's why I'm endorsing Ted Budd for US Senate. Ted Budd will be a humble public servant whose top priority will always be the people of our great state of North Carolina.

    The Honorable Chris Francis, Sheriff, Rutherford County

    I've enjoyed getting to know Ted Budd. I appreciate that the two most important things to Ted Budd are his faith and his family and that's why I'm endorsing Ted Budd for US Senate. Ted Budd is a good man who supports law enforcement and who will fight for conservative values in the US Senate.

    The Honorable David A. Mahoney, Sheriff, Transylvania

    Public safety officials faced unprecedented challenges during the COVID pandemic. As a nation, we continue to face many challenges and we need people in the US Senate who will face these issues head on and fight for we the people. That's why I'm endorsing Ted Budd for US Senate. Ted will be in the fight to make our country safer.

    The Honorable Eddie Cathey, Sheriff, Union County

    Ted Budd is a good man who supports law enforcement, and I am proud to endorse Ted Budd for US Senate. I've been the Sheriff of Union County for almost two decades now and I've seen a lot of change since I took office. Union County is one of the fastest growing counties in the state and the nation; just like North Carolina is one of the fastest growing states. We need new leaders like Ted Budd as we face new challenges presented with our fast-paced growth. Ted Budd is the right man for North Carolina.
