Nov. 5th, 2018 – Midterm elections usually don’t drum up much excitement, but 2018 isn’t like most midterm cycles.

There’s robust – even nasty – debate over the course of the nation and North Carolina. President Donald Trump isn’t on the ballot, but he is, in essence, the linchpin of how and why voters are turning out in record numbers in North Carolina’s early voting. We’re offering our endorsements of local and statewide races to pass along our sentiment for the people and initiatives we believe will best serve our state going forward.

U.S. House of Representatives District 9
We heartily endorse Dan McCready, an entrepreneur and Marine Corps veteran. Mr. McCready has the background and temperament to represent the 9th, which includes East Charlotte. We find his middle-of-the-road stance on issues ranging from abortion rights to the economy refreshing compared to the demagoguery of Mark Harris, who upset incumbent Robert Pittenger in the Republican primary.
