Ted Budd for Senate


  • “I am gravely concerned about our country’s future, because North Carolina families, our values, and our jobs are under attack every day in Washington. Joe Biden has proven to be extremely liberal and dangerously incompetent. The Senate is our last line of defense against the Left’s woke, socialist agenda and weak foreign policy. Putting America first is the only way that our country will succeed. I pledge to you that I will work for everyday families, not the elite or political insiders, and I will fight to restore the conservative, constitutional values that make this country great.”
  • “Joe Biden, Cheri Beasley, and radical leftists who pull their strings are making American woke and broke. I’m running for Senate to stop the madness. Because working families need a fighter to stand up and crush the broken Biden-Beasley agenda once and for all.”
  • “Biden’s failed agenda is destroying our economy, and Cheri Beasley will make the problem worse. The economy is falling as inflation rises endlessly…As your Senator, I’ll get to work and save our economy.”


  • “This gentleman is going to be your next Senator, someone you’ll be very proud of. He’ll fight like hell. I’m giving him my complete and total endorsement.” – Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States
  • “Ted Budd is the best candidate to serve North Carolina in the US Senate. He understands what North Carolinians need to make their lives better, and he knows what they want in a US Senator.” – Newt Gingrich, Former Speaker of the House of Representatives
  • “North Carolinians are sick of out-of-control spending, rising crime, and government that wants to control them. That’s why I’m supporting Ted Budd. He’s a pro-freedom, pro-law enforcement, pro-parent, small business owner who understands the best government is one that gets out of the way.” – Nikki Haley, 29th US Ambassador to the United Nations
