Republican #NCSEN Candidates Oppose Infrastructure Deal That Will Bring Jobs To North Carolina

Last Friday, Democrats delivered on a historic infrastructure deal that will create jobs, grow the economy, and strengthen American competitiveness for decades to come, yet all three Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate stand against the bipartisan legislation. 

As North Carolina mayors call the infrastructure deal a “game changer,” Republican Senate candidates are on the hook to explain GOP opposition to these critical investments in North Carolina: 

  • $7.2B for highway programs
  • $457 million for bridge replacement and repairs 
  • $910M to improve public transit options
  • $109M to expand an EV charging network
  • $100M to expand broadband coverage and help at the least 424,000 North Carolina residents who lack access

“Jobs and badly-needed investments in roads, bridges, high-speed internet, and more are coming to North Carolina, forcing Ted Budd, Pat McCrory, and Mark Walker to explain exactly why they stood against legislation that will spur economic growth and better the lives of North Carolinians,” said NCDP spokeswoman Kate Frauenelder. “Voters won’t forget.”
