Press Release:

    North Carolina Democrat Cheri Beasley seems to think violent riots and looting are not a "real issue." As Townhall recently reported, Beasley has a history of downplaying and dismissing the violent summer protests in 2020.

    In June 2020, Beasley said we must "recognize the legitimate pain" of rioters while discussing destroyed businesses and towns, and insisted "it is not enough to say to protestors: go home and follow the rules. It's just not that simple."

    The riots caused over $2 billion worth of damage nationwide. In North Carolina, insurance claims had already passed $10 million by the beginning of June 2020, and the riots cost taxpayers millions of dollars in police overtime and resources.

    During one riot in August 2020, extremists vandalized a memorial to fallen deputies. A month later in September 2020, Beasley called the protests "helpful" and dismissed "the violence and all that" as a "detraction...around what the real issues are."

    It's clear: Beasley's claims now that she stands with law enforcement and small businesses are just empty rhetoric, which is why law enforcement is endorsing Ted Budd.
