Jeff Jackson

NC-11 Representative Madison Cawthorn joins Pete to talk about NC State Senator Jeff Jackson bowing out of the US Senate race in favor of backing Cheri Beasley and talks about how the Left is causing problems across the country with "smash and grabs" in the midst of Joe Biden's inflation. 

In the first hour of the show, Pete goes through some of what's going on behind the scenes inside the NC Democratic Party and State Senator Jeff Jackson's camp as Jackson decided to shut down his US Senate run. 

Former Congressional candidate and campaign manager Thomas Mills joins Pete to talk about NC State Senator Jeff Jackson stepping out of the US Senate race to support Cheri Beasley's campaign. 

As the world remains focused on what happens next in the region, former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, U.S. service members Matthew Ridenhour and Jeff Jackson, along with former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney weighed in on the situation in Afghanistan. All four provided a unique perspective Friday morning.

Jackson, 38, a Afghan war veteran and National Guard soldier said he is committed to “honesty and decency” in politics. He's the latest candidate from either party to announce a run after Burr's seat. Donald Trump's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, was one of the high-profile names to initially throw their name into the primary mix for the North Carolina seat. The incoming elected Senator will join Republican Thom Tillis to represent the Tar Heel State in the Washington chamber.
