It was great to be back out on the campaign trail in NC-10 last week! It was a busy week with stops in Catawba, Forsyth, Lincoln, and Yadkin Counties. I am grateful for the warm welcome from the new counties in NC-10 and the continued support from longtime friends. Keep reading for an update on my travels.
First, I visited one of the new counties in the Tenth: Forsyth County. It was great to meet with voters at the early voting site in Clemmons. Thank you for coming out to make your voice heard.
After early voting, I had the opportunity to stop by Wake Forest University and meet with College Republicans who are fighting for our conservative values on college campuses. Thanks to the Wake Forest and High Point University College Republicans who came out to make calls on my behalf and hear about my experience as a College Republican.
After some time in Forsyth County, I enjoyed spending the day in Yadkin County. It was great to sit down with Yadkin County Sheriff, Ricky Oliver. Sheriff Oliver works tirelessly to keep Yadkin County safe, and I appreciate him taking time out of his busy schedule to talk about the issues law enforcement is facing.
Thanks to Bobby Todd and members of the Yadkin County Chamber of Commerce for stopping by to have lunch with me and hear about my work in Washington. Having grown up working at the lawn mowing business my dad started out of our backyard, I have always fought for small businesses and I appreciated the opportunity to hear about your challenges in Yadkin County.
Thanks also to Yadkin County Commissioner Kevin Austin for giving me a tour of your family business. Austin Electrical Enclosures is making products in NC-10 with American-made steel and it was great to see the process and meet your employees.
I ended my day in Yadkin County speaking with volunteers, candidates, and voters at the early voting location. The rain could not drown the spirits of those that came out to support President Trump and help elect conservatives at every level!
I enjoyed catching up with friends in my home county of Lincoln. The Lincoln County GOP hosted a big crowd for their Candidate Meet & Greet and I am glad I was able to be there.
The next morning, I stopped by early voting in Newton to speak with voters and volunteers from Catawba County. It was great to see so many people out before the snow started falling!
