During Friday night’s debate, MAGA extremist Ted Budd stood by his vote to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
He made that vote in the middle of the night on January 6th– after rioters had smashed windows and threatened lawmakers in the US Capital.
In North Carolina, we believe in democracy and in working together, not apart. We are a state with a fraught history and know what it looks like when a wealthy, extremist minority tries to maintain power over a diverse majority. That’s why our members at Down Home have endorsed Cheri Beasley for US Senate. We don’t need a MAGA extremist like Budd representing us in Congress.
This race is a close one– and if we win, it’s a historic one. Cheri Beasley would be the first Black woman from the Tar Heel state to go to the US Senate.
A recent poll, conducted by WRAL, shows a close race in NC. 43% of likely voters favor Republican MAGA extremist Ted Budd and 42% prefer the former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Cheri Beasley.
Are the odds in our favor? We are going to be straight with you: Not really. This is an uphill battle against extremism, against racist dog whistles, and against politics of division. That’s why we need you.
What we heard in the debate?
- Budd fully aligned himself with the MAGA agenda and Trump, who has endorsed him
- Beasley supported the decision to decriminalize marijuana, Budd did not.
- Unlike Budd, Beasley wanted to be judged by her positions and policy. “It’s wrong to align me with anybody unless I specifically say what my positions are, and I’m glad to talk about my positions, because my positions really do support people here in North Carolina.”
