Budd Was No Match for Cheri Beasley

The Carolina Journal is reporting that voters across North Carolina turned to Republican candidates where crime was the top issue in the race. U.S. Senator-Elect Tedd Budd made Democrat U.S. Senate nominee Cheri Beasley’s weak record on crime a top issue in the North Carolina Senate race and it worked. The brother of a slain state trooper spoke out against Beasley. Other ads questioned her judgment when it came to convicted sex offenders. Beasley had no comeback—nothing.
