Former NC Rep. Scott Stone received the endorsement of the largest newspapers in North Carolina to be the Republican nominee for Lieutenant Governor. The Charlotte Observer, the Raleigh News & Observer, and the Durham Herald-Sun all agree Stone would be the most effective Republican Lieutenant Governor.
From the endorsement:
“We believe former NC Rep. Scott Stone would be the most effective Republican lieutenant governor.
Stone, from Mecklenburg, is a strong but not bombastic conservative who brings a thoughtful, deliberate approach to his work. He’s also a successful businessman who is the kind of public face Republicans should want to express their values.”
With 9 candidates in the race, this endorsement is a strong vote of confidence for Stone, who is the president of a Charlotte-based civil engineering firm and former North Carolina Legislator.
