(Advance, NC) – Ted Budd today announced that his campaign has named a Budd Crew Chief in all 100 counties in North Carolina. The Budd Crew Chiefs will help organize grassroots support in every county in the state. Please find quotes from various Budd Crew Chiefs at the bottom of this release.

“One of the most important members of a NASCAR team is the Crew Chief,” said Ted Budd. “The driver always gets the credit, but I know it’s the crew chief who makes sure the team is at peak efficiency and the engine is prepared for maximum output. Our Budd Crew Chiefs are doing the same thing for our grassroots operations in each county. With the help of the Budd Crew Chiefs, Amy Kate and I are going to drive the Liberal Agenda Crusher into Victory Lane on Election Night!”

“A strong, well-organized grassroots organization is critically important for any campaign serious about winning,” said Jonathan Felts, Senior Advisor to Ted Budd for US Senate. “But even more so in a non-presidential election year like 2022. You need your supporters reaching out to their friends and neighbors with a personal voter contact. A lot of folks might tell you that all that matters these days are flashy TV ads or the latest campaign tech widget, but after 25 years in this business, I know that the ability to inspire and motivate a strong, neighbor-to-neighbor, grassroots organization is what separates a winning campaign from other candidates’ losing efforts.”“Our initial campaign plan didn’t anticipate being organized in all 100 counties this early,” Felts continued, “but President Trump’s early endorsement has allowed us to accelerate our campaign buildout. We made an early radio buy across the state, in urban and rural markets, to help build Ted’s name ID and we’ve invested in key staff who specialize in grassroots outreach. The Liberal Agenda Crusher continues to accelerate and will take Ted Budd to Victory Lane in 2022.”
