“Oddly enough, the future of the Republican stranglehold on North Carolina and the nation can be glimpsed through Meadows and the 11th District.”
“I was shocked and dismayed by the optics when, while watching the Michael Cohen congressional hearing, Mark Meadows, our own 11th District representative, paraded an African-American lady before the assemblage like a life-size cardboard cutout.”
“Because of these and many more of Mark Meadows’ positions that my wife and I disagree with, we are actively supporting the alternative for the 11th Congressional District, Democrat Phillip Price.”
“N.C. 11 must elect Phillip Price and other Democrats as a check on presidential power before Trump does any more damage to our great nation.”
N.C.’s tenth and eleventh congressional district primary results finalize fall races with McHenry and Meadows maneuvering to defend their seats.
“Having lived here for his entire adult life — 30-plus years — and working all over the 16 counties taking down barns and farmhouses to make the lumber into furniture and wood panels for new homes, Mr. Price gets us because he is definitely one of us.”
“He knows that a complex problem like gun violence is not solved by solely allowing guns to be carried in our schools and concealed in our pocketbooks and waistbands.”
“It is important that such things be brought forward.”
“Mark Meadows hates big government when it helps people with health problems, but he loves big government when it benefits his investments.”
