McIntyre claims 75% of mayors in Eastern NC endorse him

Rep. Mike McIntyre claims 75% of mayors in Eastern NC endorse his campaign Rep. Mike McIntyre claims 75% of mayors in Eastern NC endorse his campaign

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Rep. Mike McIntyre's campaign released a list of mayors in eastern North Carolina who support his campaign for re-election. According to an email, McIntyre's campaign says 75% of the mayors in the 7th District are publicly supporting the Congressman.

WECT has found one mistake in the original list. Mayor Harry Simmons of Caswell Beach is listed as a Republican. Simmons told us this afternoon he is a registered Democrat. A McIntyre campaign spokesman says that they have corrected what they called a "typo".

The email also says the list, which is seen below, excludes mayors in Johnston and Sampson counties. Those endorsements will be announced at a news conference on Wednesday.

McIntyre is running against state Senator David Rouzer in his bid for a ninth term in Congress.

Rouzer's campaign issued a statement this afternoon in response to Mcintyre's claim. "David has the endorsement of all the NC Senators who represent counties in the 7th District, as well as endorsements from Mrs. Dorothy Helms and former Senators Elizabeth Dole and Lauch Faircloth," Jessica Wood, a spokesperson for the Rouzer campaign said in an email.  "Voters in the 7th District will ultimately decide which candidate is better prepared to represent them in Congress, and we believe this November voters will reject Congressman McIntyre and his 16 years of ineffective leadership in Washington and elect David Rouzer to represent them instead."
