SALISBURY — Carl Ford’s campaign for N.C. Senate will get a helping hand from some notable political names this week.
Ford’s campaign is scheduled to hold a fundraiser this week featuring N.C. House Speaker Tim Moore and U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson.
Ford represents N.C. House District 76 and hopes to make a move to the N.C. Senate in 2018. Ford, from China Grove, is one of two Republicans who have declared their intent to run for the newly redrawn Senate District 33, which contains Rowan and Stanly counties.
On Thursday, Ford is scheduled to host the fundraiser for his N.C. Senate campaign. Moore, a Republican from Cleveland County, has served as the N.C. House speaker since 2015. Hudson, a Republican from Concord, has served as the congressman for the N.C.’s 8th Congressional District since 2013.
Ford’s campaign is advertising prices that range from $40 for regular attendees to $1,000 for sponsors.
The event is scheduled to occur at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the Event Center, adjacent to Cornerstone Church.
