3 Days Into General Election, Holly Grange Still Hasn’t Endorsed Dan Forest
Grange Has No Shortage of Hang-Ups About Forest’s Candidacy. Will She Endorse Him?
RALEIGH — On Tuesday night, Dan Forest beat Holly Grange to win the Republican nomination in the governor’s race — but we still haven’t heard a peep from her about whether she’ll support Forest in the general.
In the days leading up to the primary, Grange did not sugar-coat her concerns about Forest as the Republican nominee. She slammed Forest over his corrupt mega-donor Greg Lindberg, his position on HB 2, and his divisive rhetoric.
So far, some of Grange’s predictions about a Forest candidacy are already proving true: “If he is the nominee, I guarantee you’ll hear about [Lindberg] every day,” Grange said.
Yesterday, news broke that Lindberg, Forest’s biggest donor, was found guilty of bribing a government official. Cooper for NC “came out swinging” against Forest in the general with ‘What’s Dan Hiding?” — a new :30 digital spot and website (WhatsDanHiding.com). The campaign highlights Forest’s ties to Lindberg.
It’s clear that Holly Grange has more than a couple of hang-ups about Dan Forest as the Republican nominee in this race. Will she put those aside, break her silence, and endorse him? Or, will she sit on the sidelines?
