GOP Candidate for Lieutenant Governor Greg Gebhardt announces his plans to take to the skies in 2020.
Today, December 17, 2019 marks the 116th anniversary of the Wright Brothers' first successful powered flight. In honor of our state's rich-history, Greg Gebhardt will be taking off in a small aircraft in 2020, relying on our state's regional public airports to meet voters across the state.
According to the Division of Aviation
, "North Carolina's public airports annually contribute $52 billion to the state's economy, supporting 307,000 jobs that generate $12.6 billion in personal income and $2.2 billion in state and local tax revenues."
Greg Gebhardt, an Iraq War Veteran, is the first candidate for Lieutenant Governor to make a multi-day campaign tour traveling across the state in the skies, earning him the title "First Lt. Governor in Flight."
On the plans, Greg Gebhardt offered the following:
"In honor of North Carolina's rich history of being first in flight, I will be taking off in 2020 to travel the skies, meeting North Carolinians from across the state and proving to them why I'm the best candidate for Lieutenant Governor."
"Our campaign has always been about reaching as many hardworking North Carolinians as possible, in their communities. The opportunity to share our message of the American Dream with grassroots supporters across the state is only possible thanks to the generosity of a fellow combat veteran and his family."
Further details on our team's flight plans will be released in the coming weeks.
