Statement from Avery County Sheriff Kevin Frye:
We need a strong Republican with courage and dedication to fill the vacancy of Mark Meadows. If you want someone who will continue to fight against the liberal socialist movement the way Representative Mark Meadows has, we need Representative Wayne King to continue that fight. If you want someone who will support our President in continuing economic growth, higher wages, low unemployment and a booming stock market, we need Wayne King! If you want someone who will stand with our President against liberal attacks, in securing our border and standing up for America first and foremost, we need Wayne King. Please let Wayne know that he has your support and your prayers.
Statement from Henderson County Sheriff Lowell Griffin
Wayne King is a supporter of law enforcement, as a matter of fact, Wayne has public service experience and is a supporter of all the men and women providing emergency services to us. Wayne King has worked in the 11th District continually meeting and listening to the people.

Wayne will work hard in representing the people of our district with the conservative values that make our area one of the greatest places to live and work in the world.

I am proud to support my friend, Wayne King. I have had the privilege to work with him for a number of years while he was Deputy Chief of Staff for Congressman Mark Meadows. Wayne is a man of faith, a true public servant and true supporter of law enforcement and all public safety! We have had many conversations over the years and I know this is a good man, an honest man and one that will give his best to Western North Carolina and this great country. Honored to stand with you Wayne King.
