Larry has been an avid follower of politics since 1964. He has worked in various political campaigns as a volunteer, served as campaign manager for a 2014 North Carolina District 6 U.S. House candidate, and was a candidate in the 2016 North Carolina Republican primary for the U.S. Senate.
Larry has not only been a lifelong Republican, but, more importantly, a lifelong conservative. As your next Senator, he will be a strong, consistent, trustworthy conservative voice for North Carolina!
