HENDERSONVILLE, NC – Conservative Christian businessman Mark Meadows took to the airwaves this morning in the race to represent Western North Carolina in Congress. Meadows is the first of eight Republican candidates in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District to begin airing TV ads. He introduces himself to voters as a small businessman who is driven by a moral obligation to stop Barack Obama’s assault on Western North Carolina values. Meadows ads can be seen on broadcast and cable TV stations throughout the 11th Congressional District.
“From Obamacare, to our state’s upcoming marriage amendment, President Obama has run roughshod over Western North Carolinians’ values, and I’m running to stop him.” stated Meadows. “Guided by my unwavering faith and my experience starting a small business, I won’t rest until his policies are repealed and replaced with conservative solutions, so our economy can grow and Western North Carolinians can have jobs again.” Meadows is a fiscal and social conservative who has served on numerous boards and was recently appointed to the State Board for Economic Development in Western North Carolina, because of his expertise in business and job creation. He is a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights, a Christian Conservative and a champion of “Life, Liberty, and Lower Taxes.”
In recent weeks, Meadows has won back-to-back straw polls in Burke, Henderson, Caldwell, Buncombe, Transylvania and Swain Counties. He has also picked up major endorsements from 2010 GOP nominee Jeff Miller, the Family Research Council’s Action PAC and Dr. Michael Farris, the founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association. Meadows is also supported by numerous County Sheriffs and other elected officials throughout North Carolina.
