In Greenville, NCDP Slams Budd, Smith as “Too Extreme”

Yesterday, the North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP) kicked off its “Too Extreme GOP” Tour in Greenville slamming Ted Budd, Sandy Smith and the North Carolina Republican Party for their extreme agenda.  

Under Republicans’ extreme plan, over four million North Carolinians’ Social Security and Medicare benefits could be put at risk. Tax hikes for nearly 40 percent of North Carolinians could be imposed. 

Throughout August, NCDP will continue to hit the road with statewide tour stops in Asheville, Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh. 

What Eastern North Carolinians are seeing about the event: 

The Daily Reflector: U.S. House 1 candidate calls opponent “too extreme”
A state senator and candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives said he believes some Republicans have “gone entirely too far” and that his opponent fits into that mold.

Sen. Don Davis, who represents Greene and Pitt counties in the state Senate District 5, spoke alongside Pitt County Democrats at the North Carolina Democratic Party’s Too Extreme GOP Tour, which kicked off at Greenville’s Town Common Thursday. 

… The state Democrats’ “Too Extreme” tour is part of a nationwide move by Democrats as Sunday marks 100 days out from the general election. The tour will continue through August in Charlotte, Asheville, Greensboro and Raleigh.

Ahead of the 100 days until Election Day mark, North Carolina Democrats are joining Democrats across the country to kick off a ‘Too Extreme GOP’ statewide tour to call out Republicans for their dangerous agenda of cutting Social Security and Medicare for over four million North Carolinians, rolling back our fundamental freedoms, and opposing legislation that could cut costs for families,” said Ellie Dougherty, North Carolina Democratic Party spokesperson.

“While Democrats remain laser-focused on lowering costs and protecting freedoms for hardworking North Carolinians, Republicans like Ted Budd are too extreme for our state.”
