Raleigh, NC—Monday, Former North Carolina US Senate candidate Bill Flynn hosted a press conference with Mark Harris. Flynn, a renowned radio broadcaster from the Triad recently ended his candidacy for North Carolina’s US Senate race. Flynn announced today his endorsement and support of Mark Harris’s candidacy in the US Senate primary. The campaigns met in Kernersville with their closest friends and supporters at Prissy Polly’s BBQ.
“Although I’ve stepped away from my own bid for the U.S.Senate, I have not abandoned my commitment to the vital principles of liberty, limited government, faith, and family,” said Bill Flynn. “These principles and the Constitution itself are today under attack as never before, and we must rise to their defense. Fortunately, we have one candidate who shares this view, Dr. Mark Harris.”
“As Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church in Charlotte and the former President of the North Carolina Baptist State Convention, Mark Harris has the necessary vision combined with proven business and leadership skills. He is the voice for those of us who recognize the dysfunction of big government and the damaging effects of tax-and-spend politics. Mark firmly believes in American exceptionalism, as did Ronald Reagan, who saw America as the “Shining city upon a hill.””
“I am confident that Mark will represent us well. Most importantly, he is committed to the same values shared by those who supported my own candidacy. I am, therefore, enthusiastically supporting Mark Harris and am encouraging my fellow North Carolinians to now work with me to make Mark Harris our next United States Senator,” Flynn concluded.
The endorsement further solidifies Mark Harris as the bridge candidate, the only candidate in the race that can unite the electorate instead of dividing it- as noted by Governor Mike Huckabee.
“I am humbled and honored to receive Bill Flynn’s endorsement and support,” said Mark Harris. “We both agree that voters here are seeing and feeling first hand the damage that politics as usual has done to our state and nation. I am thankful for Bill’s willingness to run and for the times we crossed paths on the campaign trail. I am truly grateful for his vote of confidence in this race. This is a big endorsement and will intensify our growing grassroots momentum.”
