The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
A top anti-Biden super PAC announced Tuesday that it will invest over $1 million in North Carolina to help GOP Senate nominee Ted Budd in the final days of his campaign keep the seat for Republicans and defeat Democrat President Joe Biden’s agenda.
The group, the Committee to Defeat the President, will file for over $1 million in independent expenditures in its effort to help Budd, backed by former President Trump, defeat Democrat rival Cheri Beasley.
Roughly $900,000 will be allocated to strategic digital production, targeted placement and social media advertising – in addition to roughly $250,000 in get-out-the-vote phone calls and text messages.
"The people of North Carolina need to recognize that the status quo simply isn’t good enough for America – neither in their state nor the country more broadly," said committee chairman Ted Harvey. "Americans shouldn’t have to deal with rising prices, higher crime rates, and left-wing radicalism, but that is unfortunately a reality in Biden and Beasley’s America."
The group says the investment plays to its strengths of turning out historically low-propensity registered Republican voters who have strongly supported Donald Trump, citing recent successes in Tennessee.
"Ted Budd is the man to help get America back on track, and we are proud to support his candidacy for U.S. Senate," Harvey also says.
