Press Release:

    Cheri Beasley was endorsed by former Hoke County Sheriff Jim Davis today and it's obvious we're all thinking the same thing...

    Is that an endorsement any candidate should tout?

    Let's unpack Davis' extensive, controversial track record:

  • In 2002, he politicized the kidnapping and murder case of a five year old and used it to win re-election.
  • In 2000, he was accused of mismanaging the Sheriff Department's budget, which lead to county officials freezing his budget due to overspending.
  • In 1998, he accused of illegally campaigning at polling places on election day.

    If Cheri Beasley counts that as a net-positive, then she might as well continue running on an anti-law enforcement agenda. After she attempted to distance herself from the "Defund the Police" movement last week, voters knew that was not the case. It's transparent she still has some unfinished business with the "Defund the Police" movement as she has fundraised with Cori Bush and backs a soft-on-crime agenda.

    Ted Budd's endorsement from the North Carolina Troopers Association (NCTA) was the key law enforcement endorsement in this race. These officials trust Ted Budd and his track record of backing law enforcement. He stands by their side and ensures they receive the resources and training they need to keep all 100 counties safe.

    In his effort to stand with these brave men and women, Ted Budd has:

  • Introduced the Community Policing Act that helps local police departments to train officers in de-escalation tactics and active community engagement.
  • Written the "No Tolerance for Rioters Act" that doubles the penalties for rioting.
  • Redirected over $90 million to better train Capitol Police following Democrats proposal of a multi-billion dollar Capitol security bill.

    "Democrats can try to rally support around radical Jim Davis' endorsement of Cheri Beasley, but with the track record Davis has, even a desperate candidate should know better than to accept his support. There's one candidate in this race who will support law enforcement, and voters know that's Ted Budd." - RNC Spokeswoman Taylor Mazock
