NC TEA Party does not endorse candidates. We believe that individuals in each county should research out the candidates who are running to serve them in all levels of government, and make informed choices based on their own findings and conversations with other citizens, including in our statewide endorsement thread. Visit the State Board of Elections website to find out exactly who will be on your ballot when you go to vote. The TEA Party in North Carolina is not a political party but a grassroots movement of ordinary citizens concerned about their county, state and country. NC TEA Party is not a PAC.
