Businessman and attorney Bill Graham has thrown his hat in the ring as a Republican.

Over the last couple of weeks, he has aired campaign ads across TV screens. When he’s not working on his campaign, Graham spends time at his brewery in Salisbury.

When questioned about his motivations for running, Graham credited his background in both law and business as a way to bring productive change to the state.

“I looked at the candidates that were in, and I think that I can bring a conservative future to the state. And I think I have a plan to reduce taxes, put more money in families’ pockets, and reduce crime,” Graham said. “I’m a former prosecutor from Cabarrus and Rowan County. I have an extensive business background. I’ve created businesses and jobs. I’m the only one on either side of the race that’s creating jobs.”
