On Monday, Feb. 10, GOP lieutenant governor candidate Greg Gebhardt continued his statewide tour, visiting voters in Lexington at Speedy’s Barbecue.
Many locals came to talk about the issues affecting Davidson County. There were also a handful of voters who came undecided about their choice in the race, asking Gebhardt what makes him the right candidate for the job.
“I grew up with a single mother making under $25,000 a year, enlisted in the Army at age 18, and a few years later I was blessed with the opportunity to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point,” said Gebhardt “Only in America can a kid grow up like me and end up graduating from West Point. That can’t happen anywhere else, and that’s because we live in a constitutional republic rooted in capitalism. I’m running because this idea of socialism that’s sweeping across the nation – I don’t want my daughters to grow up in that America.”
When asked by voters what differentiates him from the other GOP candidates in the race, Gebhardt offered the following: “Our campaign has always been about reaching as many hardworking North Carolinians as possible, in their communities. We have been traveling the state to meet voters and share our message of freedom, opportunity and the American Dream. We look forward to visiting with more North Carolinians from across the state and proving to them that we are the only Republican candidate for lieutenant governor with a clear Vision for Victory in 2020: Veterans, vocational trades, and voter ID.”
Gebhardt and his team will continue their journey across the state throughout February as part of his “First in Flight” Tour. To see his full schedule of meet & greets and rallies across the state, go online to www.jointeamgreg.com/flightplan.
