Pence Stumps for Budd in NC

On Wednesday, former Vince President Mike Pence made the case for electing Rep. Ted Budd for U.S. Senate in a final-week push before the 2022 midterm elections. The Pence stop comes as polls show Budd building a narrow lead over his opponent, Democrat Cheri Beasley, his 47% to her 44%, who has focused much of her campaign on abortion access. Polls also show that the economy or inflation are the top issues for 46% of N.C. voters, over abortion being the top for 18% of voters.
