RALEIGH — North Carolina’s top law enforcement group endorsed U.S. Rep. has abandoned its longstanding support for Democrat Cheri Beasley for aligning herself with “defund the police activists” in the years since George Floyd’s death, opting instead to throw their support behind Trump-back U.S. Senate candidate Ted Budd. 

The North Carolina Police Benevolent Association had endorsed Beasley for statewide judicial offices in 2008, 2014 and 2020, according to FOX News. 

“With violent crime on the rise in North Carolina, more than ever before, we need a senator who has our backs and not someone who is supported by Defund the Police activists,” said David Rose, president of the NCPBA.
