Pro-Trump Super Pac Committee to Defend the President is backing pro-Trump candidate Dan Bishop in North Carolina’s 9th District.
According to The Daily Caller:
One of the largest pro-Trump super PACs is mobilizing on behalf of Republican candidate Dan Bishop in a North Carolina special election.
The Committee to Defend the President will be spending over $200,000 in independent expenditures on the Bishop campaign ahead of the state’s 9th Congressional District election scheduled for Sept. 10. The super PAC pledge includes $150,000 on TV advertising across the district, as well as $40,000 on strategic digital advertising, $12,500 on a grassroots team and $5,000 that will go straight to Bishop’s campaign, according to the Committee to Defend the President.
The election in the district President Donald Trump won in 2016 by over 11 percentage points will make up for the 2018 midterm election, reported Politico.
“This race is about Donald Trump,” senior adviser to the Bishop campaign Jim Blaine said, according to Politico. “Dan’s embraced Trump 100%.”
President Trump has offered his full support for Bishop in the election and even tweeted his support.
Looking forward to being with Dan Bishop in two weeks, in North Carolina. His opponent believes in Open Borders and Sanctuary Cities, and won’t protect your Second Amendment! https://t.co/nSX2yuXAb1
