DURHAM, NC (WTVD) — Democratic Senate candidate Cheri Beasley met with students, faculty and administrators at Durham Tech Thursday afternoon as part of her “Tour for North Carolina.”
“I think what the community college is doing shows that it’s important to make sure that workers are ready for work, that there are industries here in the state and that they’re coming to the state and that’s attractive to the state,” Beasley said.
She expressed her solidarity with two parties. Law of chipsIt is awaiting President Biden’s signature after passing both the Senate and House.
“We’re a technology hub and we definitely want to make sure chips and semiconductors can be made in this country, and it’s important to us to have people ready to do that,” Beasley explained.
CNBC recently named North Carolina the nation’s top state for doing business, an area where Republicans and Democrats share common ground. However, several other issues point to a clear divide in the race between Beasley and Republican Ted Budd.
Beasley wore a necklace with the words “Save Roe,” a reference to the Supreme Court decision. Dobbs A case that overturned a nearly 50-year-old decision.
“Women’s constitutionally protected right to make reproductive health choices for their families is being taken away,” Beasley said.
In a statement issued shortly after the decision, Badd wrote, “…it is a victory for millions of unborn children who now recognize the most fundamental of all human rights, the right to life.”
Beasley pushed back against recent votes in Congress against same-sex and interracial marriage rights, as well as access to contraception.
“People here want to know that we stand for equality, that we’re here to respect everybody, no matter who they are, they love anybody. And people I know understand that it’s very important to support same-sex legislation. Marriage, but also birth control,” Beasley said.
The former chief justice was paid $7.4 million last quarter, compared to Budd’s $2.1 million, although money outside of the PAC may flow into the state. A poll conducted by the Trafalgar Group over the past month has seen the race rise 2.5%, which is within the margin of error.
ABC11 will be interviewing Congressman Budd on Friday, and you can hear from him on our 6pm newscast.
