Lew Hendricks Forces a Primary on Jonathan Jordan

Watauga County resident Lew Hendricks filed to run in the Republican primary for North Carolina House, Dist. 93, and issued the following statement:
TO: Watauga and Ashe County Republican and Independent Voters
Jonathan Jordan hasn't earned the right to have a free pass in the Republican primary.
The Republican and Independent voters in Watauga and Ashe County deserve to have a choice. I will give them that choice.
1. A vote for me is a vote for an unwavering commitment to public education.
2. It is a vote to represent the best interests of the people of Watauga and Ashe County and not the special interests.
These are the two most glaring differences I offer to the Republican and Independent voters in the 2016 primary. Politicians love to talk about their support of public education and representing the best interest of their constituents. 
It's time they start doing it.
Jordan has not yet filed for reelection but is expected to do so.  On the Democratic side, Sue Counts, who ran against Jordan in 2014, filed for a rematch today.
