— Yesterday, Sam Hayes filed to run for Attorney General against liberal incumbent, Josh Stein. Hayes kicked off the day by making the announcement on the Pat McCrory Show (interview link HERE
"After nearly 150 years of Democrats controlling the Department of Justice, it's time for a change. We need experienced, conservative leadership, and I am the only conservative in this race. I have the background for the job and, in fact, I have already been doing the work that the past two AGs have refused to do"
Hayes said the top issues in this race will be experience, safety and security, and standing up for small businesses and farmers. One of the biggest concerns in North Carolina right now is the sanctuary policies adopted by some sheriffs with regard to illegal aliens, which Hayes spoke out against.
"I will not sit on the sidelines and let criminal illegal aliens threaten our communities. I will push these sheriffs to defend our citizens by enforcing the law and cooperating with ICE"
