A.J. Daoud proud that North Carolina will retain all 72 delegates to the Republican National Convention
For Immediate Release
Pilot Mountain, NC – July 31, 2015: After traveling thousands of miles and giving over 50 speeches urging Republicans to call on their legislators to take the steps necessary to ensure North Carolina retains their 72 delegates to the Republican National Convention, A.J. Daoud is happy to share that the legislature has listened. Rep David Lewis recently announced that the chambers have come to an agreement that would protect the delegate count. Thanks to the work of Senator Rucho and Senator Brock in addition to Representative David Lewis for helping facilitate this agreement.
“This is a victory for everybody in the North Carolina Republican Party. Grassroots activists spent countless hours making phone calls, knocking doors, hosting events and working behind the scenes to ensure that Republicans gained seats from the U.S. Senate to the Town Council’s across the Old North State. I’m proud of the work we did and I am happy that we are able to remain a top target state in 2016.” Daoud Remarked. “As a benefit, the State of North Carolina will see substantial resources spent in our economy and our State can boast of a significant number of delegates, alternates and guests representing North Carolina on the national stage in Cleveland, OH next summer.”
North Carolina will have the 6th most delegates of any state going into the Republican National Convention in 2016. The recent changes allow North Carolina to retain all 72 delegates to the RNC in a winner take all primary.
On Thursday, the North Carolina Supreme Court ruled the opportunity scholarship program – passed by the General Assembly in 2013 to provide scholarships for low-income students to attend the school of their choice – is constitutional. The court’s ruling is the final decision in the case.
Last school year, opportunity scholarships were awarded to 1,200 students attending 224 schools all across North Carolina. Over 1,100 of these students have reapplied, joining the 4,800 applicants for the coming school year. Both the House and Senate budget proposals have allocated more than $17 million for the opportunity scholarship program next year.
With its decision, the Supreme Court reaffirmed that education in North Carolina is about our children and their future. The ruling makes clear that parents – not education bureaucrats or politicians – ought to be able to choose the educational pathway best suited to their children’s needs, and it empowers thousands of low-income families across the state to make that important choice.
Selecting our Next President
This week the Senate unanimously approved a bill to move our state’s presidential primary to March 15, ensuring North Carolina voters will play a key role in selecting our nation’s next president. The bill allows voters in both the Republican and Democrat primaries to select their candidates of choice far earlier than under the old system, which will dramatically increase our state’s influence on the presidential election. North Carolina is the ninth largest state in America and has been the site of some of the country’s closest presidential races in the last two election cycles. This bill will make sure the voice of our voters is at the forefront of the national discussion.
