Hugh McColl endorses Roberts in NC's 9th district | Politics
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -- U.S. Congressional candidate Jennifer Roberts announced Thursday that Charlotte businessman Hugh McColl has endorsed her campaign in North Carolina’s 9th District.
McColl is the former CEO of Bank of America.
“Jennifer Roberts has a proven record of working to make the Charlotte area a great place to do business,” said McColl. “I know Jennifer and trust her to do what is right for North Carolina businesses and our community.”
Hugh McColl is an iconic business figure in the Charlotte area and helped build Bank of America into the largest bank in the country and helped establish Charlotte as a national banking center.
“We have all seen the corrosive effect that self-funding, insider politics has had on Washington where people buy influence for self gain and forget the community they serve,” said Roberts. “I look forward to continuing to work with Hugh McColl and other business leaders to create good-paying jobs for North Carolina families.”
McColl had endorsed Republican Jim Pendergraph in the 9th District primary.
Roberts has served eight years on the Mecklenburg County Commission, five as Chairman, where she has worked as a strong, independent voice for North Carolina families. She has a proven record of reaching across the aisle and working with all groups to create jobs, strengthen our education system and improve health care.
