Overall, Cleveland County will have three Elected Offices for various Republican Candidates.
NC House District 110:
The Race for NC House District 110 will include only parts of Cleveland County and parts of Gaston County.
The incumbent Kelly Hastings will face challenger Charlene High from Dallas, NC.
Kelly Hastings has been elected and re-elected numerous times over the years by wide margins, often unopposed,. Kelly is rated high in conservative groups, the NRA and also voted for guns to be allowed in churches under certain circumstances. During certain district line changes, Kelly was my Representative here in Fallston. Kelly has deep roots in Cleveland County and we believe Kelly has served us well. Kelly presently serves on many important Committees and works well with Speaker of the House Tim Moore.
Charlene High is an unknown quantity who says her best qualification is being a good listener. Charlene’s political website indicates she is Pro-Life- Pro Second Amendment, would vote to ban abortion, advocates traditional families, but would support a legal “review” of cutting funds for Planned Parenthood, among other things.
So, Charlene High advocates some of the same conservative things that Kelly Hastings advocates, as shown by his voting record, but would be mostly a Kelly “Lite” with no political influence in Raleigh and from somewhere else besides Cleveland County.
Our recommendation is vote for Kelly Hastings for the NC District 110 Representative in the Republican Primary Election on May 8, 2018..
