The Club for Growth’s statement on the endorsement:
Washington, DC – The Club for Growth PAC today announced its endorsement of businessman Ted Budd for the U.S. House from North Carolina’s 13th Congressional District. The seat is effectively an open race after court-ordered redistricting.
“Ted Budd is a successful entrepreneur who is ready to take on Washington,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “He’s a pro-growth outsider who has never run for public office. While developing the family business and owning his own successful gun store, Ted has faced the government’s crushing burden on small businesses, and we’re confident that he stands head and shoulders above the rest of the field in this race and that he’ll be a strong fighter for limited-government policies.”
