NCDP Statement On Rep. Ted Budd’s Campaign for U.S. Senate

Following news that Congressman Ted Budd is running for the U.S. Senate in 2022, NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson released the following statement: 

“A far-right Freedom Caucus extremist, Congressman Budd followed Donald Trump off the election fraud cliff when he undermined our democracy, spread dangerous and false conspiracy theories, and fought to overturn the election results even after the violent insurrection at the Capitol on January 6th. Congressman Budd has repeatedly voted against the interests of North Carolina in Washington by opposing the desperately needed American Rescue Plan, helping pass massive tax breaks to the rich and corporate special interests, and voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act. This messy, crowded Republican primary will be one of the most divisive contests in the nation, and the flawed field of candidates will face a brutal fight for the nomination.”
