GREENE COUNTY – The newly sanctioned Constitution Party of North Carolina found success in its firstin the 2018 elections with a local win that will help establish party legitimacy and raise awareness for future elections.
Jerry Jones of Greene County was victorious in his run for a county commissioner seat marking the first election win for a party that was only recently awarded ballot access earlier this year.
While the party ran multiple candidates, including one for congress, the local races are important for them to establish a foothold. Building up to higher races and eventually having representation in the General Assembly will go a long way toward amplifying a true voice for conservatives and limited government.
As the power shifts among the smaller majority, and incumbents are being replaced, it may create an opportunity for a conservative option on the ballot.
Another party newly constituted in 2018 was is the Green Party of North Carolina. Fortunately the voters of the Old North State were sane enough to not elect their candidates.
