Buncombe County has 3 Socialist/Democrat House members and 1 Socialist/Democrat Senate member that did not score over a 40 on Civitas Action NC Freedom 2018 rankings. The highest score is 100. Their score of 40, 40, and 33.3 are some of the lowest scores in the House. In the Senate the one Socialist/Democrat member scored a 25, making that member the LOWEST scorer in Civitas rankings. This is not good for Buncombe County. To top off the problem Republicans hold the Majority in both the House and the Senate. Meaning that the 3 Socialist/Democrat House members and 1 Socialist/Democrat Senate member have NO WAY of getting a bill they wish to become law a law. They are USELESS to Buncombe County. Is it not time to replace them with Republicans? The Republican Party has proven that they can put the States budget and the economy in Great Shape. And in doing so is Preparing for North Carolina’s Future. Isn’t time Buncombe County help them to continue doing so by voting for Republicans? I hope your answer is a big YES.
By securing our elections with Voter Photo ID we move forward by stopping the proven illegal voting in North Carolina. According to a February poll run by Civitas, 69% of NC voters support voter ID. North Carolina can join 34 other states in our nation by adding a Voter Photo ID Amendment to our Constitution. Voter Photo ID will instill confidence that your vote COURTS. People will have more faith that the voting results are the TRUE voice of the People. Yes, voting for the Voter Photo ID Amendment is a great step going forward into the future.
