NCDP Statement on Donald Trump’s Visit to North Carolina

Raleigh – NCDP Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement regarding President Trump’s visit to Charlotte to fundraise for vulnerable Republicans Ted Budd (NC-13) and Mark Harris (NC-09) today:
“It’s no surprise that Mark Harris and Ted Budd are desperately calling on President Trump and national Republicans to help prop up their floundering campaigns. Mark Harris’ comments against women show he’s out of step with this century, while Ted Budd continues to put big money special interests ahead of North Carolina families. Dan McCready and Kathy Manning are running strong campaigns to be independent voices in Congress by focusing on the issues that matter most to our state, like protecting Medicare and Social Security and ensuring access to affordable health care. North Carolinians are ready for a change this November. An appearance by President Trump isn’t going to change that.”
