About Ted - from his website
Ted Budd is a conservative with the courage to stand strong for what’s right — no matter how powerful the opposition — but with a humble spirit that seeks to serve others.
Raised in a family of small business owners, Ted learned early (and often) that hard work, family, and faith are the foundation to success. Ted grew up on a cattle and commercial chicken farm in Davie County where he still lives today with his wife and three kids.
Ted has earned recognition for his resolute stand against Washington’s wasteful spending. The Council for Citizens against Government Waste named Ted a Taxpayer Hero for his “relentless and unwavering support of the fiscal interests of American taxpayers.” As a business owner, he knows that fiscal responsibility leads to economic growth.
Ted’s record is clear: he is dedicated to fighting for North Carolina families. That’s why Ted voted to cut middle-class taxes and why he votes to deregulate small businesses who are strangled by big government.
Every day, Ted puts his private sector experience to work for taxpayers. Right out of college, Ted worked with his family’s facility-services business, The Budd Group, and helped create new jobs at Green Resource (now part of John Deere Landscapes). Ted’s work at The Budd Group and Green Resource helped them to earn the Triad Business Journal’s “Fast 50” as one of the region’s 50 fastest growing privately held companies. After that project, pursuing other entrepreneurial opportunities, Ted sold his share of the family business to his brother and has had no financial interest in The Budd Group since 2003.
Since divesting from his family’s business, Ted has pursued business interests in a number of fields. Currently, he is the owner of ProShots. When Ted Budd bought the business, ProShots was bankrupt and closed. Ted reopened it for local police to train nearby, and it is now a thriving shooting-sports retail store, training center, and indoor range.
As a lifetime NRA and Grassroots NC member and the owner of a gun range and store, Ted will not waver in defense of the freedoms protected by the 2nd Amendment. He is committed to strengthening the family and recognizes the cultural battle we face to protect it. He is a member of the Home School Legal Defense Association and has served as a board member of North Carolinians for Home Education. He met his wife Amy Kate in the former Soviet Union on a mission trip in 1991, the week before the collapse of communism. They still enjoy mission trips and serve in their church.
Ted knows that the best way to get the American economy ramped up again after the COVID shutdowns is through a system that encourages innovation and relieves the stranglehold of overregulation. He is committed to making a difference, not building a political career. A graduate of Appalachian State University, Ted holds a Masters in Business Administration from Wake Forest University where he was recognized as Mentor of the Year, and a Masters in Educational Leadership and Family Life from Dallas Theological Seminary.
"Freedom is not the sole prerogative of a chosen few, but the universal right of all God's children." Ronald Reagan, 1985
