Candidate Forest in Salisbury Wednesday

Dan Forest, Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, will campaign in Salisbury on Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. near Cook Out at 801 E. Innes St.
He will be meeting people outside next to his 32-foot campaign bus, affectionately named “Bubba,” that he is using to crisscross North Carolina during the closing days of this primary election campaign.
The event is free, casual, family-friendly and open to all registered Republicans and independents in Rowan County.
“We are basically tailgating our way around the state, giving people the chance to come out and meet me and me them,” Forest said in a press release sent Monday by his campaign. “If people don’t like the direction the country and state are headed, come out and tell me about it and let’s work together to fix it.”
Forest is the son of U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick. He and his wife Alice have four children and live in Raleigh.
