(The McDowell News) Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant encouraged McDowell’s Republican leaders Saturday night to do all they can to support Mitt Romney for president and Pat McCrory for governor and help make North Carolina a red state again.
“I think Clint Eastwood had it right,” said Bryant. “Let’s go ahead and make his day.”
Bryant is a former lieutenant governor of Mississippi who took office as the 64th governor of the Magnolia State on Jan. 10. On Saturday, he toured North Carolina, speaking at local Republican headquarters in four different cities during the last days of the early-voting period. He took part in early-voting events at GOP offices in Asheboro, Lexington, Mooresville and, lastly, Marion.
At the local GOP headquarters, Bryant said he loves North Carolina and comes here once a year to visit his in-laws in Lake Lure. He added he can’t wait to have McCrory elected as the next North Carolina governor and become a fellow member of the Republican Governor’s Association.
Most of all, Bryant said he hoped the local GOP leaders would continue to work hard in their community on behalf of the Romney campaign. He stated that the former Massachusetts governor shares his beliefs in encouraging people and business owners to become successful through less taxes and regulation.
In his brief speech, Bryant talked about how he got to see President Ronald Reagan at the White House during an event for the Junior Chamber of Commerce. Bryant was active with the Jaycees in the 1980s.
