Overall, Cleveland County will have three Elected Offices for various Republican Candidates.
US Congress-NC District 10
The Race for the US Congress NC 10th District includes all of Cleveland County, all of Lincoln County, All of Gaston County, all of Rutherford County, Most of Catawba County, Polk County and stretches up to Buncombe County and includes Asheville in a recently redrawn District. The population is more than 750,000.
The incumbent, Patrick McHenry faces Jeff Gregory and Gina Collias of Cleveland County and three other candidates from somewhere else.
Patrick McHenry has turned out to be a career establishment politician whose influence has lessened with the election of Donald Trump as President. McHenry also has NOT aligned himself with the Freedom Caucus headed by NC District 11 Representative Mark Meadows who may become the next US Speaker of the House and whose stand on issues is very close to those of most Cleveland County residents. McHenry, as an incumbent is well funded by lobbyists.
Jeff Gregory from Mooresboro is very conservative, down to earth and well informed on major issues facing Cleveland County in this day and time.
Gina Collias from Kings Mountain proclaims herself to be a Pro-Choice Progressive Republican woman. Pro Choice, Progressive and making being a woman a political imperative is the definition of a liberal Nancy Pelosi Democrat.
Therefore, I give Jeff Gregory the Home Boy advantage and recommend voting for Jeff Gregory for NC 10 US Congressional District in the 2018 Cleveland County Republican Primary Election.
