Cpngressman Ted Budd is running for the U.S. Senate seat from North Carolina held by Richard Burr, whi is not running for re-election. The following is an edited biography supplied by the Budd campaign.  
Ted Budd is a conservative. Raised in a family of small business owners, Budd learned that hard work, family, and faith are the foundation to success. Ted grew up on a cattle and commercial chicken farm in Davie County where he still lives today with his wife and three kids.
The Council for Citizens against Government Waste named Budd a Taxpayer Super Hero for his “relentless and unwavering support of the fiscal interests of American taxpayers.” As a business owner, he knows that fiscal responsibility leads to economic growth. Budd voted to cut middle-class taxes and why he votes to deregulate small businesses who are strangled by big government.
Out of college, Budd orked with his family’s facility-services business, The Budd Group, and helped create new jobs at Green Resource (now part of John Deere Landscapes). Ted’s work at The Budd Group and Green Resource helped them to earn the Triad Business Journal’s “Fast 50” as one of the region’s 50 fastest growing privately held companies. After that project, pursuing other entrepreneurial opportunities, Ted sold his share of the family business to his brother and has had no financial interest in The Budd Group since 2003.
Since divesting from his family’s business, Budd has pursued business interests in a number of fields. Currently, he is the owner of ProShots. When Ted Budd bought the business, ProShots was struggling, but it is now a thriving shooting-sports retail store, training center, and indoor range.
As a lifetime NRA and Grassroots NC member and the owner of a gun range and store, Budd will not waver in defense of the freedoms protected by the 2nd Amendment. He is committed to strengthening the family and recognizes the cultural battle we face to protect it. He is a member of the Home School Legal Defense Association and has served as a board member of North Carolinians for Home Education. He met his wife Amy Kate in the former Soviet Union on a mission trip in 1991, the week before the collapse of communism. They still enjoy mission trips and serve in their church.
Budd says the best way to get the American economy ramped up again after the COVID shutdowns is through a system that encourages innovation and relieves the stranglehold of overregulation.
A graduate of Appalachian State University, Budd holds a Masters in Business Administration from Wake Forest University where he was recognized as Mentor of the Year, and a Masters in Educational Leadership and Family Life from Dallas Theological Seminary.
