Jobs & Economy
- Excerpt: "Working with small business for most of his career, Bob knows its small business that drives our states economy. Bob has witnessed first hand that the fastest way to create jobs is to reduce the size and scope of government, reduce regulatory red-tape and set free the entrepreneurial spirit of hard-working North Carolinians."
Taxes & Spending
- Excerpt: "Bob will battle to prevent state government from placing financial burdens on taxpayers at state, county, city and school districts. He is dedicated to reducing taxation, lowering spending and continuing the fight to restore fiscal sanity to the statehouse."
- Excerpt: "Bob supports policies that empower parents and communities to make decisions at the local level so that we can again reach best in the nation status in our school system and prepare our children to compete in a global economy."
- Excerpt: "Bob believes that our founding fathers intended us to be free of many government regulations and requirements that we now face. Bob believes that government functions its best in a smaller, leaner form; and that states rights should preclude federal mandates. As a State Representative, Bob will fight for your constitutional rights."
Only Bold Colors
- Excerpt: "Bob is the True conservative in the race who has worked with our local and regional Tea Party groups fighting for our Conservative values. He is also the President of the regional Al-pam Republican club that is the premier Republican organization in Eastern North Carolina. Our Republican candidate must be a Conservative who will represent our values"

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
In 2013, the North Carolina General Assembly was in session from January 9 to July 26. In 2014, the North Carolina General Assembly will be in session from May 14 through a date to be determined by the legislature.
