Ted Budd spent this evening's debate talking about the top issues voters care about - inflation, economy, and crime while Cheri Beasley spent the evening running away from her record, trying to hide her support of Joe Biden's policies, and desperate to talk about anything other than the disastrous Biden-Beasley agenda.
The contrast between the two candidates was clear. Ted Budd is running to make life better for the working families of North Carolina, while the Biden-Beasley policies are making life harder for those same working families.
"I want more for you and Biden and Beasley want more from you,"
said Ted Budd. "That's why Biden and Beasley want 87,000 more IRS agents to come after small business owners across North Carolina. I think we'd be better served with 87,000 new border patrol agents instead. I'm running to stop the Biden agenda but Cheri Beasley will be a rubber stamp for the Biden agenda. That's not going to help North Carolinians."
Cheri Beasley also demonstrated on tonight's debate stage that she is soft on crime. She offered no defense for her record of letting repeat convicted sex predators roam our communities without GPS monitoring, defending cop killers, and vacating death sentences for murders. Her abysmal record is why law enforcement organizations are backing Ted Budd.
Beasley also offered no solution to the crisis at our southern border, which is leading to rising crime in NC, as well as an influx of opioids and human trafficking. Ted Budd wants to finish the wall and secure our border.
