It has become clear which candidate is willing to meet North Carolinians where they stand. President Trump rises to that moment. Joe Biden has failed to show up until it was too late.
September 21, 2020 Press Release
Not only would current legislative proposals in Congress advocating on behalf of Catawba gambling interests in the Charlotte area play favorites at the expense of our state’s recognized Cherokee tribe, but the presence of an additional casino would have consequential economic impacts for many western North Carolinians who call our state home. I encourage supporters of these efforts to realign behind the already-bipartisan opposition and stand firm in prioritizing North Carolinians and the tribes that call our state home. Picking winners from other states is a bad bet.
Thanks to Republican leadership, America has newfound strength, fortitude, and accountability towards rogue, terroristic regimes such as Iran after years of ‘leading from behind’ under the Obama-Biden administration. Recent attempts by Indonesia and Niger to obstruct and block these efforts on the UN Security Council are deeply troubling and warrant a discussion on whether America should be sending assistance checks to nations that undermine our interests and take actions supportive of the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.
Barring parents from an empty 51,000-seat stadium because of North Carolina’s 50-person outdoor mass gathering restriction is illogical, ridiculous, and a gross mismanagement of policies supposedly put in place for our state’s safety. UNC and Governor Cooper need to fix this and amend any restrictions to allow mothers and fathers to support their children.

Providing our children with the opportunity to succeed in the face of adversity is vital to securing their bright futures in life. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has thrown a wrench into the schooling plans for millions of Americans. I am proud to support the School Choice Now Act to expand their education choices and continue fighting for their success not only in the classroom, but beyond.
August 22, 2020 Press Release
Without House committee testimony from Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, Nancy Pelosi has called a faux emergency session to push a conspiracy theory through the halls of Congress without facts nor merit. Let this be clear: While millions of Americans are desperately waiting for Pelosi and Schumer to stop holding up coronavirus relief negotiations and help their small businesses, Democrats are instead intent on sporting tin foil hats and promoting baseless narratives.
August 18, 2020 Press Release
Chaos and destruction are raging across our nation in cities where the local government officials are actively working to demonize law enforcement officers. We will not allow North Carolina to suffer the same lawlessness and tragedy as Seattle, Portland and Chicago. Just as our law enforcement officers safeguard and protect our communities from these harmful actions, we must also do the same for them by continuing to support them and their efforts to restore order in America.
As the home of the largest HBCU in our nation, the monumental Morrill Act of 1890 has created countless opportunities for North Carolinians over the past 130 years. Each of the nineteen Historically Black Colleges and Universities established through this legislation, including North Carolina A&T State University, contribute immensely to the lives, education, and futures of thousands of students across the country. I am honored to continue my advocacy for these institutions through this resolution commemorating their historic anniversary.
