Conservative State House Rep. Bob Steinburg Declares for NC Senate 1

EDENTON – After recent court-ordered redistricting drew incumbent Republican Senator Bill Cook into District 3, conservative State Representative Bob Steinburg (R-Edenton) announced his campaign for the open State Senate District 1 (Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hertford, Hyde, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell, and Washington counties) in the following statement:

“From my earliest days as a Teenage Republican for Barry Goldwater to this last election for President Donald Trump, Governor Pat McCrory, and Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest, I have worked my entire life for the conservative values that made America the “shining city on a hill” that President Ronald Reagan so wisely recognized. America is great because its people are God-fearing, good people like we have in Northeast North Carolina. Besides my family, the highest honor of my life is fighting for these people and our values in Raleigh, but make no mistake, we are under attack every day. The political establishment would happily sweep aside our beliefs – I cannot let that happen. That’s why I’ve never given a dime to liberals who oppose these values and why I’ve worked with conservative backbone day after day to transform state government. With all that’s at stake, we must continue the fight.”

A retired businessman Steinburg serves Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Pasquotank, Perquimans, and Tyrrell Counties in his third term in the State House, where he serves as Chairman of the Agriculture Committee.

While the final legislative district maps are yet to be confirmed, the clock is ticking and candidates have to get the 2018 campaign ball rolling. Expect more announcements in the coming weeks for pursuits of in play seats in the General Assembly.

Despite Democrats’ attempts to put a dent in the Republican majority, strong principled conservative leadership could change 2018 elections from a liability to an opportunity to further drain the Swamp that exists just as much on Jones Street as it does in D.C..
