Ted Budd, (R) U.S. Senate candidate:"So when President Trump endorsed me last June, he said this. He said, Ted, I'm endorsing you because you never wavered on America First policies. That America first agenda, it led to historic job growth, wage growth and prosperity for all Americans. And I pledged to my fellow North Carolinians I will never waver when it comes to fighting for the forgotten men and women in this state and in this country."++WHITE FLASH++6. SOUNDBITE (English) Rep. Ted Budd, (R) U.S. Senate candidate:"And Cheri Beasley would be nothing more than a rubber stamp for everything that is wrong with Joe Biden's woke and broke policies. So we need to put the brakes on this agenda for the sake of hardworking North Carolinians. And that's exactly what I'm going to do. I'm Ted Budd. I'm a small businessman. I'm a -- I'm a conservative fighter. I'm America First. And I am honored to be your Republican nominee for the United States Senate. God bless you. And may God bless the United States of America. Thank you all."++WHITE FLASH++7. SOUNDBITE (English) Cheri Beasley, North Carolina Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate:"I know we share in the hope for what North Carolina can be for our children. And I know that we all want to see a future for our children because there's too much at stake. And that's what's true no matter whatever part of the state you live in or what political party you ascribe to, because ultimately, if you don't have a good paying job that pays the rent, doesn't matter whether you're a Democrat or Republican. If you don't have affordable health care, it doesn't matter whether you're a Democrat or Republican. If you don't have schools that will educate your children and have the resources that they need to do so or have access to the ballot box, it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. All of these issues touch all of us.  And we can build a better future for our state and for our families. But it's going to take all of us working together, knocking doors, calling our neighbors, engaging with voters. It is all hands on deck."8.

Close of stickers on tableANNOTATION:Beasley won the Democratic nomination against 10 others, and Budd beat out 13 Republican candidates. One will replace retiring GOP U.S. Sen. Richard Burr.STORYLINE:U.S. Rep. Ted Budd and former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Cheri Beasley won their respective Senate primaries on Tuesday, setting up a fall election matchup that should again test former President Donald Trump's influence in North Carolina.Budd won the 14-candidate Republican primary over former Gov. Pat McCrory and U.S. Rep. Mark Walker, while Beasley had entered Tuesday as the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, which 11 people sought. Current GOP U.S. Sen. Richard Burr is retiring.Their election victories came as North Carolina voters whittled down Democratic and Republican candidates seeking to serve on Capitol Hill, in the General Assembly and on the judicial bench.Trump, who narrowly won the state's electoral votes in 2016 and 2020, gave his endorsement to Budd nearly a year ago and benefited from millions of dollars spent by the Club for Growth Action super PAC used to praise him and brand McCrory as too liberal."So when President Trump endorsed me last June, he said this. He said, Ted, I'm endorsing you because you never wavered on America First policies. That America first agenda, it led to historic job growth, wage growth and prosperity for all Americans," Budd said during his victory speech at a watch party Tuesday night.McCrory and Walker criticized Budd for failing to participate in televised debates and accused the super PAC of trying to buy an election for Budd.McCrory, a moderate within the state GOP, signed laws while governor that cut taxes and extended abortion waiting periods to 72 hours. He's best known nationally for signing a "bathroom bill" that restricted access for transgender people in 2016 and cost the state billions.Beasley's path to the nomination widened after two rivals left the race last fall. Beasley, who would be the first Black senator elected from North Carolina, has consistently been the largest fundraiser in both primary fields."If you don't have a good paying job that pays the rent, doesn't matter whether you're a Democrat or Republican. If you don't have affordable health care, it doesn't matter whether you're a Democrat or Republican. If you don't have schools that will educate your children and have the resources that they need to do so or have access to the ballot box, it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. All of these issues touch all of us," Beasley told a crowd of her supporters during her victory speech Tuesday.Voters also picked nominees Tuesday for scores of county positions. Many towns and cities also held elections postponed last year because of redistricting delays.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
