ATPAC backs candidates in GOP’s primary run-off

From Staff Reports

 Five candidates in the Republican primary run-off on July 17 have been endorsed by the Asheville Tea Party Political Action Committee.

The ATPAC-endorsed candidates and their offices include Mark Meadows for N.C. 11 congressional seat; Dan Forest, lieutenant governor; Ed Goodwin, secretary of state; Mike Causey, insurance commissioner; and John Tedesco, superintendent of public instruction.

The candidates were vetted by ATPAC and other Western North Carolina affiliate groups of iCaucus, ATPAC Chairwoman Jane Bilello explained.

“These candidates have clearly demonstrated that they embrace our constitutionally conservative principles of individual rights, fiscal responsibility, limited governments and free markets,” she said.

Early voting for the primary run-off started June 28 at each county’s Board of Elections office. On July 17, Primary Run-Off Day, all voting precincts will be open.

Bilello said iCaucus — a national, nonpartisan, citizen-led organization — empowers citizens to fully participate in the election process by fairly and completely vetting candidates before the primary, and then holding them accountable once elected.
