    ORIENTAL, N.C.     State Senator Norman W. Sanderson (R-District 2) of Pamlico County was honored by the North Carolina Republican Party by being inducted into the party's statewide Hall of Fame during its 20th biennial awards banquet in Raleigh, N.C., Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021. Sanderson was inducted as a nominee from the 3rd Congressional District Republican Party.

    The criteria for the award bestowed to Sanderson include those individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to the Republican Party organization through at least a decade of service at the local, regional or state level.

    "It is deeply humbling to have been awarded such an honor of being inducted into the North Carolina Republican Party Hall of Fame," Sen. Norman W. Sanderson (R-District 2) said. "I am profoundly blessed to work, day-in and day-out, with so many dedicated freedom-loving patriots to advance the principals of the Republican Party of smaller government, lower taxes, the right to life, and safeguarding our individual liberties. Together with my wife, Linda, we live each day to the fullest by praising God and thanking Him for the blessings that He's given us."

    Sanderson's leadership within the Republican Party includes serving in the past as the Chairman of the Pamlico County Republican Party, 1st Vice-Chairman of the 3rd Congressional District Republican Party, Secretary of the Craven County Republican Men's Club, and Vice-Chairman and founding member of the Coastal Carolina Taxpayer Association.

    Continuing his service and dedication to the Republican Party, Sanderson successfully defeated a 4-term Democrat incumbent during the 2010 election cycle with an impressive 64% of the vote to represent the constituents of the 3rd District in the State House. After a term in the House, Sanderson successfully ran for the State Senate to represent the constituents of the 2nd Senatorial District in 2012. In every race since then, he has won by margins of no less than 63% of the vote.

    "From serving the Party as a County Chairman to now in the State Legislature, Senator Norm Sanderson has selflessly given himself to the conservative cause. Norm has represented the Republican Party with honor and distinction," 3rd District Chairman Dave Wickersham said. "Norm is well respected for his honesty, integrity, hard work, commitment to constituents, and as a man of deep faith. He works tirelessly as a Statesman for the people of North Carolina."

    This year's event featured more than 400 guests and the keynote speakers included, but not limited to, Matt and Mercedes Schlapp. Matt Schlapp is the Chairman of the Conservative Political Action Coalition (CPAC), and Mercedes Schlapp is a prominent Latina national leader and political media commentator.

    U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis, U.S. Congressman Greg Murphy (NC-3), U.S. Congressman Richard Hudson (NC-8), U.S. Congressman Ted Budd (NC-13), Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson, N.C. House Speaker Tim Moore and Chief Justice Paul Newby, were also in attendance as special guests.
