Dr. Scott Keadle is the only Concealed Carry permit-holder running for Congress in North Carolina's Eighth District, he said in an interview with LaDonna Hale Curzon last week. Dr. Keadle was endorsed by the Club for Growth and the National Republican Congressional Committee has spent $1.2 million dollars on advertising for the race.
He is a dentist and the president of a real estate company running to end deficit spending and reduce the debt. His opponents - one Republican, one Democrat - are both incumbents. He is the only person in the race with small business experience, and is a military veteran. He was opposed to raising the debt ceiling and the bank bailouts. He had run for the same office in 2010 and lost, but says he is positioned to win this time. He's gotten the endorsement of all the local Tea Party groups that do endorse and of multiple conservative groups.
