According to the Beaufort Observer, Beaufort County Commissioner Hood Richardson, a Republican, will challenge Senator Marc Basnight in November.

Commissioner Richardson is well known for being a strong advocate for conservative principles.  He has been in a flap with the Beaufort County School Board recently over the U.S. History curriculum.  That preceded this month’s uproar over proposed NC DPI curriculum changes.  He even challenged Governor Purdue to a debate over illegal immigration. He has served as a County Commissioner for the past 14 years.

We look forward to getting to know Commissioner Richardson.
