ABA and North Carolina Bankers Association Release New Ads Thanking Rep. Ted Budd

WASHINGTON — The American Bankers Association joined the North Carolina Bankers Association today in releasing new ads thanking Representative Ted Budd for helping North Carolina families and small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ad features Kelley Earnhardt Miller, daughter of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Sr., talking about Budd’s efforts to secure financial relief for businesses in his district.

“Ted Budd’s efforts have helped small businesses in North Carolina weather the pandemic and continue to support their employees and communities during this difficult time,” said ABA President and CEO Rob Nichols. “His history of working with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle benefits citizens across North Carolina and across the country.”

“Ted Budd worked to ensure small businesses like ours received financial support when we needed it most,” said Earnhardt Miller. “Now he is fighting to make it easier for businesses that received Paycheck Protection Program loans to have them forgiven. His efforts will help ensure our family will continue racing for generations to come.”

“Congressman Budd’s support for the Paycheck Protection Program helped businesses across our state survive during this unprecedented public health crisis,” said Peter Gwaltney, president and CEO of the NCBA. “He is a leader who has always put North Carolinians first, and we are proud to join ABA in releasing these new ads thanking him.”

The voter education campaign will begin airing in North Carolina as soon as today. Click here to see the ads.
