RALEIGH – With the importance of North Carolina in the electoral math that will determine whether of not President Donald Trump is reelected in November, it makes sense that his campaign would focus on the First in Freedom state. Keep America Great rallies will be held in the lead up to the November; the Republican National Convention will be hosted by Charlotte in July; and, the Trump campaign just announced a six-figure ad buy, to get things started.
The ad, titled ‘Fighter,’ will be aired in Charlotte, Greensboro, Greenville, and New Bern.
A powerful ad, made more so by the facts that back it up. Despite current tumult in economies and markets due to corona virus fears, the economics of the Trump presidency thus far has been one of hyperbole becoming reality.
From North State Journal (NSJ):
“[…] “Folks in North Carolina know that come fall, their choice will be between President Trump’s record of success and the Democrat’s big government, socialist agenda,” said Ken Farnaso, Deputy Press Secretary for the Trump campaign exclusively to NSJ.
“President Trump has delivered nearly 220,000 new North Carolina jobs, the lowest state unemployment in nearly 20 years, Opportunity Zones, and a booming economy. The facts are clear—North Carolinians are ready to deliver a win for President Trump in November,” Farnaso added.
In comparison, during the Obama administration, around 13,600 manufacturing jobs were lost in North Carolina and according to labor statistics, the state’s unemployment rate has fallen to just 3.6 percent, its lowest level in nearly 20 years. The average unemployment rate under President Obama was 8.2%. […]”
This has all come to pass with only two years of a Republican congress and a constant, years long witch hunt by bitter Democrats targeting Donald Trump at the expense of the Republic.
The phrase, “A rising tide lifts all boats,” comes to mind when watching the ad above. No matter which demographic you fit into, this economy has likely bolstered your outlook while giving you more confidence in charting your own course. That’s a sentiment that usually leads to reelection. We will have to wait until November to find out, but we’ll be seeing a lot more of the president and his surrogates in the Old North State — over the airwaves and in person — in the coming months.
