Today, Polk County Commissioner Paul Beiler announced his endorsement of Wayne King for the Republican nomination for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District.

“I believe that continuity is key for our district. As someone who has been with Mark Meadows from the beginning, I believe Wayne gives us just that. He understands this district and has the knowledge and skills it takes to hit the ground running when it comes to working for the people of the 11th district,” said Beiler, “He is a conservative. He will protect our 2nd amendment. He also is a staunch supporter of the right to life. The protection of the unborn child. As a Pastor these things are very important to me. I believe Wayne King is absolutely the best man for the job for the 11th district and I fully endorse him to be our next Congressman.”

“I am honored to have the endorsement of Commissioner Beiler,” King said. “He is a respected conservative leader in Polk County and his support is important to me. As your Congressman, I will protect the right to life, defend our 2nd Amendment rights and proudly stand with President Trump.”
