Raleigh, NC — With news breaking that Chris Anglin has entered the Ninth Congressional District Republican primary, North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Robin Hayes has released the following statement:
“There are numerous high quality candidates that have entered the race. We look forward to a vigorous primary and supporting the winner to defeat another pawn of Nancy Pelosi who shies away from answering the tough questions that Ninth District voters demand of their representatives.

“However, Chris Anglin is not a Republican. During the 2018 campaign, Anglin changed his registration from Democrat to Republican in order to split the vote and allow the election of a far-left activist to the State Supreme Court. Anglin raised an overwhelming majority of his funds from liberal donors. He will not be allowed to access any GOP data, information, or infrastructure. As allowed by Republican Party rules, our committees with jurisdiction over this matter will confirm my decision in due course.”
