“Congressman Walker cares about the concerns of law enforcement. I know, because I’ve seen it firsthand. Eric Holder and the Obama administration harassed us for years, until Mark went to Congress. Mark gets results.”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 23, 2016
(Greensboro, NC) – U.S. Congressman Mark Walker (R-NC-6) was endorsed today by all five elected Republican county sheriffs from the 6th Congressional District.
The sheriffs, B.J. Barnes of Guilford County, Tracy Carter of Lee County, Robert Graves of Randolph County, Terry Johnson of Alamance County, and Sam Page of Rockingham County, cited Walker’s support of law enforcement officials and advocacy for legislative priorities designed to enhance and increase public safety as the rationale for their endorsements.
“The men and women in our law enforcement agencies are some of the most selfless and dedicated public servants in our country,” Walker said. “Their service and sacrifice deserves the utmost respect, and I have worked closely with the Sheriffs of the Sixth District to ensure they have the necessary resources to fulfill their mission. It is humbling to have their trust and an honor to receive their endorsement.”
“Congressman Walker cares about the concerns of law enforcement. I know, because I’ve seen it firsthand. Eric Holder and the Obama administration harassed us for years, until Mark went to Congress. Mark gets results,” said Johnson.
“Washington has a leadership problem, and Mark Walker is the solution. Being a good leader means being a good listener, and Mark has always listened to our concerns, defended our beliefs, and fought for our principles,” said Page.
Sheriffs Barnes, Carter, Graves, Johnson, and Page, are the top law enforcement officers in five of the 6th Congressional District’s eight counties. Combined, they represent more than 75 percent of the district’s nearly 750,000 residents.
The Republican Congressional primary election will be held on June 7.
