RALEIGH – Charlotte-area U.S. Rep. Dan Bishop (R-09) endorsed U.S. Rep. Ted Budd in the state’s Republican U.S. Senate primary. Bishop, who lives in Charlotte, previously served as a Mecklenburg County Commissioner and in the NC House and NC Senate. In his endorsement, he called Budd a true conservative.

“There is no room for error in 2022; North Carolina’s next US Senator must be a fighter for ordinary people and the values the Left is systematically destroying in Washington,” said Bishop. “I have gotten to know Ted Budd well. There’s nothing slick or artificial about him – Ted Budd is a true conservative and solid as a rock. He’s humble, principled, loyal, and unafraid to stand up for working families. North Carolinians can rely on Ted Budd.”

“Amy Kate and I have enjoyed getting to know Dan and his wife, Jo, in recent years,” said Budd of Bishop. “Dan and Jo are a great team, and they never shy away from a fight when it comes to standing strong for what is best for North Carolina. Dan knows how to win tough fights because he does not back down from his principles. Amy Kate and I are honored to have Dan and Jo Bishop’s support in our campaign for the US Senate.”
