Press Release:

    NORTH WILKESBORO     State Representative Jeffrey Elmore (R-North Wilkesboro) today officially filed his papers to run for North Carolina Lieutenant Governor. Elmore, a staunch conservative Republican, will be seeking his party's nomination on March 5, 2024.

    "As I said earlier this year when I announced this campaign, North Carolina deserves a strong conservative voice in the Lieutenant Governor's office, and I have a proven track record of being a conservative who can get things done," said Elmore. "I was born and raised in Wilkes County, and my family has deep roots in North Carolina. I understand the needs of North Carolinians and will be a principled voice in Raleigh as we all work to build a bright future for our state."

    Conservative Republican Jeffrey Elmore grew up in Wilkes County, and was first elected as a Commissioner in the Town of North Wilkesboro in 2007. He is a distinguished North Carolina Teaching Fellow and an alumnus of Appalachian State University, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. Upon graduation, he started working in the classroom and is currently in his twenty-third year as a dedicated teacher in Wilkes County Schools.

    Elmore is committed to protecting life and upholding our Second Amendment freedoms. As Lieutenant Governor, Elmore will be a fierce advocate for fiscal responsibility, working to lower taxes and cut wasteful spending, allowing hardworking North Carolinians to keep more of their hard-earned money.

    A keen advocate for education, Elmore held the presidency of Professional Educators of North Carolina (PENC). His commitment to moving North Carolina forward is echoed in his service on the board of the Blue Ridge Opportunity Commission (BROC), an organization that supervises the Head Start program and supports underprivileged citizens in Wilkes, Ashe, and Alleghany counties.

    "Growing our economy, ensuring safer communities, strengthening our public schools, and upholding our traditional values will be priorities for me as Lieutenant Governor. When we remember our roots, remain true to our convictions, and serve with integrity, we can accomplish great things for all North Carolinians. You have my word that will always be my focus. I've already enjoyed meeting with voters across the state, and look forward to working hard to earn every vote. Together, we can ensure the future of North Carolina is bright," said Elmore.
