Knott's endorsement from Trump prompts votes leader to suspend

Brad Knott hasn’t won yet, but the leading vote-getter in the 13th Congressional District primary has suspended her campaign ahead of the May 14 runoff.

Former President Donald Trump – who else? – is the tipping point.

Kelly Daughtry, daughter of former gubernatorial candidate Leo Daughtry, made the announcement on Thursday afternoon. She cited Trump’s endorsement of Knott. In 2022, she lost a primary race against Trump-endorsed Bo Hines, who subsequently lost to now-U.S. Rep. Wiley Nickel, D-N.C.

“Brad has my full endorsement and I want him to know that I am here to support him, not to oppose him,” Daughtry said, adding her respect for the former president’s choice and unification of the party.
