NC Senate Hopefuls Criticize Federal Govt, Obama
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Republican candidates for U.S. Senate are gathering to try to win over conservative voters by calling for the repeal of the health care overhaul law and reduction of the federal government’s role in daily life.
Cary obstetrician Greg Brannon, the Rev. Mark Harris of Charlotte and Heather Grant of Wilkes County participated in a forum Thursday evening put together by a conservative group in Huntersville. State House Speaker Thom Tillis lives close by, but didn’t attend. His campaign office cited another engagement.
The participants say they would work to eliminate the health care law. Harris says he would seek to keep President Barack Obama in check on the use of executive orders. Grant says the president should be impeached.
The May primary winner wants to challenge Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan.
