Iredell commissioners chairman endorses Keadle

RALEIGH — Congressional candidate Scott Keadle announced this week that he has won the endorsement of Steve Johnson, chairman of the Iredell County Board of Commissioners.
Keadle is a Republican running for Congress in North Carolina’s 8th District.
According to a press release sent by campaign staff Tuesday, Keadle’s campaign has been steadily gaining strength, and he is expected to make a formal announcement soon.
Johnson and Keadle served together on the Iredell County Board of Commissioners from 2008 through 2010.
“During his term as a county commissioner on our board, Scott put money back into the hands of hardworking families, fought to protect and grow small business, and was a champion of traditional family values,” Johnson said in the press release. “Scott always spoke the truth and conducted the business of the Board of Commissioners in an open and honest manner. I am proud to endorse him for Congress and am confident he will be an effective conservative leader for North Carolina’s 8th Congressional District.“
Keadle faces Dan Barry, mayor pro tempore of Weddington; former Winston-Salem City Council member Vernon Robinson and Fairmont neurosurgeon Dr. John Whitley.
The winner of the Republican primary election will face Democratic incumbent Rep. Larry Kissell.
