U.S. Senate candidate to appear in Boone
by Anna Oakes
Greg Brannon, a Republican candidate for Democrat Kay Hagan's Senate seat in 2014, will visit Boone this Saturday, Aug. 31, to share his positions on various issues and to answer questions about his candidacy.
The reception takes place at the Harvest House from 6 to 8 p.m. and is free to the public. Rick Woods and Fred Oliver are listed as the event organizers on Brannon's campaign website.
Brannon has more than 20 years of experience as an OB/GYN physician, according to his website. Born in Los Angeles, he now resides in the Raleigh area.
According to RedState.com, Brannon was the first person to announce his candidacy for the Senate race. He has attempted to paint N.C. House Speaker Thom Tillis -- who has also entered the race -- as an "establishment insider."
"Dr. Greg Brannon is a hard-working, dedicated physician, not a career politician," his website states. "His entrance into politics is indicative of his life's work: a desire to diagnose problems and provide practical solutions."
Attendees are asked to RSVP. Harvest House is located at 247 Boone Heights Drive in Boone. For more information, call (919) 355-6977 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
